Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World

by Mark Kurlansky (Jonathan Cape, 1998)


Comprehensively researched, and written in an engaging style (though the start-of-chapter quotes and end-of-chapter recipes could easily have been omitted), Kurlansky’s history of trout fishing is of interest beyond the fate of the much-revered fish. International politics, economics and exploration feature heavily.
