 Lobster

 Autor:  Richard J King

This book takes us on a journey through the history, biology, cuisine and culture of lobsters, and their economic and environmental status worldwide. Richard J. King describes how the lobster is an international commodity, and how the American lobster fishery is arguably one of the last healthy wild fisheries left on Earth. He describes the evolution of technologies to capture these creatures, and addresses the ethics of boiling them alive. King also explores the salacious lobster palaces of the 1920s, as well as the animal's thousand-year status as an aphrodisiac, and how it has inspired numerous artists, writers and thinkers including Aristotle, Dickens, Thoreau, Dal and Woody Allen.
