Humans have cultivated the milk of mammals ever since the domestication of animals more than 10,000 years ago. Profoundly intertwined with human civilization, milk has a compelling and a surprisingly global story. Did you know that before the industrial revolution, it was common for families to keep dairy cows and produce their own milk? Or that during the nineteenth century, mass production and urbanization made milk safety a leading issue with milk-borne illnesses a common cause of death? Mark Kurlansky’s first global food history since the bestselling Cod, and Salt, Milk! traces its diverse history from antiquity to the present, detailing its curious and crucial role in cultural evolution, religion, nutrition, politics, and economics with recipes throughout.
