KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a book that is crammed to the last page with interesting facts in a field of history which most of us take for granted, the history of food and related matters such as agriculture, domestication of animals, cattle raising, poultry raising, and so on. From the earliest known days to the super-abundance of the present, history relates itself repeatedly to matters of food. There is no particularly revolutionary nor startling thesis nor findings put forward in this book, but the steps by which he presents his material make interesting reading for layman and student alike. There is a possibility of the appeal of Rats, Lice and History.
