This is the first authoritative English study on the industry's development in forty years.

Sugar cane is a major global cash crop, with its industry among the oldest in the world, encompassing cultivation, milling, and converting juice into crystal sugar.

This book traces the industry's geography from its origins to 1914, detailing its spread from India to the Mediterranean in medieval times, to the Americas during early European colonization, and throughout the tropics. It explores agricultural and milling advancements, and the industry's impact on creating multicultural tropical societies.
