Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World by Mark Kurlansky
Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World

winelghund, September 14, 2008

It has been some years since I first read this book but I still recommend it highly. Kurlansky uses his remarkable talent to weave a tapestry of scientific, historical and cultural threads relating this thirty-pound sack of protien to the Hanseatic League, the Triangle Trade, and almost every important event and entity in western European history. "...the Fish That Changed the World" indeed!
