As with the other books written by this author, this text provides an accurate and comprehensive look at sugar from both sugar cane and sugar beets. From the early cultivation of sugar in India and China and other sweet sources around the world to the introduction of the sugar to the America's and Africa to modern culture today, the text and photos tell sugar's story. This book moves beyond basic reader level and presents the complex story of sugar in a very comprehensive manner. The book ends with a good glossary and recommendations for other books and Web sites.
