About This Book

This delightful and accessible study of the spice trade benefits from the author's journeyings through the Eastern Archipelago as well as through diaries, memoirs and other archival material. The course of the history of the three centuries from 1519 was greatly affected by the insatiable Western appetite for clove, mace and nutmeg. This attractively presented account reads like a classic tale of derring-do and will both entertain the armchair traveller and stimulate the student of world affairs.
