Nabhan established his reputation decades ago as a scholar and writer concerned with the decline of local plants and foodways in the face of globalization. Here he explores the history of the spice trade as an essential precursor to colonialism and ecological imperialism, and at the same time he carefully traces the adoption of certain ingredients as signatures of particular cuisines. Richly fascinating for students of culinary history. Paperback
