I enjoyed this lively little book about the history f cod What could seem like an Earthen Vessels obscure topic for a history book turnedut to be an entertaining and very informative narrrative about a species The Olive And The Tree of fish that has sparked war shaped international political discourse impacted diverse cultures markets and the environment The author did a good jobf weaving in dd little facts within the larger discussion Seems a bit ironic that he would lamment the near extinction f the fish while simultaneously The Econometric Analysis Of Time Series offering up cod recipes The book really focusesn the North Atlantic cod and he gives nly brief mention to Pacific cod toward the end f the book The relative history focuses n the Nordic waters so it makes sense but I expected a little about the Pacific fishing dynamic In contrast with Salt A World History by the same author which I read last year the flow in Cod was much rganized and Abortion Is A Blessing overall I found it to be a better book Both books the author has a tendancy to follow a tangent in the middlef a story but he gets back to his point you have to wander with him from time to time to get there Overall well written and enjoyable Pictures and drawings are few but very helpful Okay so I shed a tear at the end I couldn t help it The cod s tale is uite tragic I love history and anthropology
