bookshelves: to-read

A well researched book. The book develops it's main theme of salts importance of salt to hans and the development of societies around the world. The main problem with the book is the attempt to prove all political advancements are caused by governments attempts to control salt. The American Revolution was caused be the salt trade for example.
