John Burnett traces the history of what has been drunk in Britain from the 'hot beverage revolution' of the late seventeenth century - connecting drinks and related substances such as sugar to empire - right up to the 'cold drinks revolution' of the late twentieth century, examining the factors which have determined these major changes in our dietary habits. It also contains a useful bibliography, with further copious source material cited in the notes.
The Drinking Classes
Despite its factual density, it's also a very good read, as full of colourful anecdote as it is of historical scholarship. The judges felt it would be a great shame if this book was confined to the shelves of academic bookshops and university libraries; the subject matter, the depth of research and the lively treatment of that research deserves a wider audience.
