Seeds of Wealth: Four Plants That Made Men Rich
Henry Hobhouse (au)
A collection of four elegant essays focusing on the economic and cultural consequences of the exploitation of timber, tobacco, rubber, and the wine grape. These cash crops have bound together trade relations for the past three centuries and have a profound -- if little noted -- effect on our world. These four were not picked out of a hat; their cultivation and consumption has had a profound and enduring effect on the world in general and, specifically, on those who grew or traded their fruits. The book tells the story of these four plants that made men rich and inadvertently changed the course of history. ďAn overview of how nature has unwittingly contributed to the creation of human wealth and economic growth.Ē
