With all the Italian culinary books on the market today, it's surprising to note Garlic And Oil: Food And Politics In Italy is the first comprehensive history of food habits in modern Italy. A review of the history from the mid-19th century to modern times argues politics radically changed the Italian diet and cuisine, from a boring, unchanging habit to become the subject of fiery political debates and government intervention. Source material includes writings of scientists, economists, politicians, consumers and more, lending a lively scholarly tone to a fascinating review of the evolution of modern Italian eating.
