520    "The history of the modern world can be described through 
       the history of the commodities that were produced, traded 
       and consumed, on an increasingly global scale. The papers 
       presented in this book show how in this process borders 
       were transgressed, local agents combined with metropolitan
       representatives, power relations were contested and 
       frontiers expanded. Including cases from Asia, Africa and 
       the Americas, as well as a number of global commodities 
       (sugar, tobacco, rubber, cotton, cassava, tea and beer), 
       this collection presents a sample of the range of 
       innovative research taking place today into commodity 
       history. Together they cover the last two centuries, in 
       which commodities have led the consolidation of a 
       globalised economy and society - forging this out of 
       distinctive local experiences of cultivation and 
       production, and regional circuits of trade"--|cProvided by
