520    "Behind every traditional type of cheese there is a 
       fascinating story. By examining the role of the 
       cheesemaker throughout world history and by understanding 
       a few basic principles of cheese science and technology, 
       we can see how different cheeses have been shaped by and 
       tailored to their surrounding environment, as well as 
       defined by their social and cultural context. Cheese and 
       Culture endeavors to advance our appreciation of cheese 
       origins by viewing human history through the eyes of a 
       cheese scientist. There is also a larger story to be told,
       a grand narrative that binds all cheeses together into a 
       single history that started with the discovery of cheese 
       making and that is still unfolding to this day. This book 
       reconstructs that 9000-year story based on the often 
       fragmentary information that we have available. Cheese and
       Culture embarks on a journey that begins in the Neolithic 
       Age and winds its way through the ensuing centuries to the
       present. This tour through cheese history intersects with 
       some of the pivotal periods in human prehistory and 
       ancient, classical, medieval, renaissance, and modern 
       history that have shaped western civilization, for these 
       periods also shaped the lives of cheesemakers and the 
       diverse cheeses that they developed. The book offers a 
       useful lens through which to view our twenty-first century
       attitudes toward cheese that we have inherited from our 
       past, and our attitudes about the food system more 
       broadly. This refreshingly original book will appeal to 
       anyone who loves history, food, and especially good 
       cheese"--Provided by publisher.
