What People are Saying About This

W. Scott Haine

"The first modern scholarly study of the production, consumption, and representation of champagne. Guy's prose is both inviting and accessible, deftly integrating theories from sociology, anthropology, philosophy, economics, and cultural history in a coherent, persuasive, and analytical narrative. When Champagne Became French is both scholarly and readable."
