Pierre Laszlo (au); Mary Beth Mader (tr). A fascinating look at a substance that is a necessity for the body, a treat for the tongue, & a commodity that shaped history. Through the ages, salt has conferred status, preserved foods, & mingled in the blood, sweat, & tears of humanity. Today, chefs of haute cuisine covet salt in its most exotic forms. This book mixes literary analysis, history, anthro., biology, physics, econ., art history, pol. science, chem., ethnology, & linguistics to create a body of knowledge about this everyday substance. Explains the history behind Morton Salt’s slogan “When it rains, it pours!” & looks into the plight of the salt miner, as well as spectroscopy & nuclear magnetic resonance. “A tour de force about a chemical compound that is one of the very foundations of civilization.”
