The Rise of Yeast: How the Sugar Fungus Shaped Civilization
The Rise of Yeast: How the Sugar Fungus Shaped Civilization4,19 16 5 Scritto da: Nicholas P. Money Letto da: David Colacci
In The Rise of Yeast, Nicholas P. Money argues that we cannot ascribe too much importance to yeast, and that its discovery and controlled use profoundly altered human history. Humans knew what yeast did long before they knew what it was. It was not until Louis Pasteur's experiments in the 1860s that scientists even acknowledged its classification as a fungus. A compelling blend of science, history, and sociology, The Rise of Yeast explores the rich, strange, and utterly symbiotic relationship between people and yeast, a stunning account that takes us back to the roots of human history.
