Beer in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance
Legislation increases as brewing metamorphoses into a commercial venture and governments recognise a profit to be made. Unger analyses this in detail and with accompanying tables which reveal consumption, exports and imports and other facts. The rise of guilds is touched on and the rapidly decreasing role of women in an industry they once dominated is, disappointingly, only given a few pages though Judith Bennett dedicates an entire and excellent book to this.
I wish Unger had spent more time on this, however, as I feel he would have been able to offer some insights. But overall, this is an excellent account of a cultural beverage that has both united and divided the world for centuries.
