9780091742164: Tobacco: A History

Tobacco is inseparable from the rise of the West to power and wealth. Many a battle, famous novel and tragic moment has been wreathed in tobacco smoke. The drug dulled the nerves of exhausted labourers and stimulated the brains of great writers. Kiernan charts the spread of tobacco, the ways it was consumed, its social symbolism and its long decline into an anti-social habit.
