Publishers Text

The Cod. Wars have been fought over it, revolutions have been triggered by it, national diets have been based on it, economies and livelihoods have depended on it. This book spans 1,000 years and four continents. From the Vikings to Clarence Birdseye, the author introduces the explorers, merchants, writers, chefs, and fishermen whose lives have been interwoven with this prolific fish. He chronicles the cod wars of the 16th and 20th centuries. He blends in recipes and lore from the Middle Ages to the present. In a story that brings world history and human passions into focus, he shows how the most profitable fish in history is today faced with extinction.
