3rd Printing. [First: 1985] From the cover: “In Seeds of Change, Henry Hobhouse takes five commercial plants — sugar, tea, cotton, potatoes and quinine — and shows how man’s need, or greed, for these products has changed the face of history and shaped destinies. A fascinating and highly original interpretation of large areas of history, it argues that these commodities have had a more profound impact on the world than most wars, battles and revolutions.”
