From the Publisher"Intriguing, nuanced, and complex. The stories DuPuis tells about milk are at once captivating and analytically astute. Lots of historical surprises and ironies add spice to her extensive findings about more than a century of milk madness in America."
-Nancy Lee Peluso,University of California, Berkeley
"A breakthrough piece of work in food studies as well as a very enjoyable read."
-Frederick H. Buttel,University of Wisconsin, Madison
"Du Puis' book is a rich and frothy drink, well worth consuming, just like its subject."
-New York History,
"DuPuis's achievement is considerable—it is a rare scholarly volume that will also fascinate general readers. Fans of Mark Kurlansky's Cod will enjoy the diverse strands of history and science that define one of the commonplace staples in our daily lives—milk. Moreover, no one thinking about the present controversey over industrialized agriculture will want to go very far without DuPuis's analysis in hand."
-Sally Fairfax,University of California, Berkeley
"This is an entertaining, informative, and tightly argued book, one well worth adding to any food library."
