Pork: A Global History - Katharine M. Rogers The biggest problem with this book is that the topic is hopelessly broad. Or did Rogers really expect to be able to cover every single food product coming from a pig in a single 100 page book? That wouldn't even be enough space to do justice to ham. The end result is a quick fire chronology of how pig products were eaten, sorted by region. It's really barely more than a list of pig dishes. Rogers would have been much better served to concentrate on sausages or hams, anything more narrow.
