  • 《六个杯子里的世界史》——汤姆·斯坦迪奇


    Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than just quench thirst. 就像汤姆·斯坦迪奇与权威和魅力的关系一样, 其中有六个对历史进程有着惊人的广泛影响, 成为关键历史时期的标志性饮品.

    《六只玻璃杯里的世界史 tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century through the lens of beer, 酒, 精神, 咖啡, 茶, 和可乐. 啤酒最早是在新月沃地和公元前3000年酿造的.C.E. 对美索不达米亚和埃及如此重要,以至于被用来支付工资. 在古希腊,葡萄酒成为其庞大的海运贸易的主要出口产品, 帮助希腊文化向海外传播. 白兰地和朗姆酒等烈酒推动了大航海时代的发展, 为长途航行的海员提供装备,并为邪恶的奴隶贸易提供便利. 虽然咖啡起源于阿拉伯世界, 它在理性时代激发了欧洲的革命思想, 当咖啡馆成为知识交流的中心. 在中国人开始喝茶几百年后, 它在英国特别受欢迎, 对英国外交政策产生了深远影响. 最后, though carbonated drinks were invented in 18th-century Europe they became a 20th-century phenomenon, 尤其是可口可乐,它是全球化的主要象征.

    给汤姆·斯坦迪奇, 每一种饮料都是一种技术, a catalyst for advancing culture by which he demonstrates the intricate interplay of different civilizations. 你可能再也不会以同样的方式看待你最喜欢的饮料了.
