Now, in Food: An Oxford Anthology, Brigid Allen brings together a splendid, soup-to-nuts cornucopia of comment and opinion on food from some of our greatest writers through the ages. Ranging from royal banque... View more info

The stirring story of the seventeenth-century pirates of the Mediterranean-the forerunners of today's bandits of the seas-and how their conquests shaped the clash between Christianity and Islam.
