Pineapple Culture
Author: Gary Y. Okihiro. A dazzling history of the world's tropical and temperate zones told through the pineapple's illustrative career. The transit of the pineapple brilliantly illuminates the history and geography of empires- their creations and accumulations; the circuits of the knowledge, capital, labor, goods, and cultures that characterize them; and their assumed power to name, classify, and rule over alien lands, peoples, and resources.
