    Once drunk only as part of an obscure Ottoman custom, coffee is now an indispensable part of daily life for billions of people around the world. It is one of the most valuable commodities in the history of the global economy and the world's most popular drug. The very word 'coffee' is one of the most widespread on the planet. Augustine Sedgewick's Coffeeland tells the hidden and surprising story of how this came to be, tracing coffee's 400-year transformation into an everyday necessity.

    The story is one that few coffee drinkers know. It centres on the volcanic highlands of El Salvador, where James Hill, born in the slums of nineteenth-century Manchester, founded one of the world's great coffee dynasties. Adapting the innovations of the industrial revolution to plantation agriculture, Hill helped to turn El Salvador into perhaps the most intensive monoculture in modern history, a place of extraordinary productivity, inequality and violence.

    The book follows coffee from the Hill family plantations into the United States, through San Francisco roasting plants into supermarkets, kitchens and work places, and finally into today's omnipresent caf?s. Sedgewick reveals the unexpected consequences of the rise of coffee, which reshaped large areas of the tropics, transformed understandings of energy, and ultimately made us dependent on a drug served in a cup.

    This beautifully photographed book celebrates all that is Corsican – the people, the geography and, most importantly, the food. And with around 80 incredible Corsican recipes designed to be prepared in the home kitchen, you’ll be transported to the island in no time.

    Relatively unexplored by visitors from outside Europe (although it attracts an estimated 3 million from France annually), Corsica is a Mediterranean island steeped in a rich food culture. With incredible geography – from the mountains to the plains and the stunning coastline – Corsica has long been a well-loved idyll for those in the know. It is also home to a unique cuisine – blending the best of French and Italian food – that respects its home-grown produce: citrus fruits, grapes, chestnuts, cheese, herbs, fish, seafood and charcuterie.

    But Corsica is more than a collection of recipes, as the book also brings together portraits of those who live and work there, and those instrumental in maintaining Corsica’s rich food culture.
