Feeding Manila in Peace and War, 1850-1945

In Feeding Manila in Peace and War, 1850-1945, Daniel F. Doeppers traces nearly a century in the life of Manila, one of the world's great megacities, to show how it grew and what sustained it. Doeppers follows key commodities for the city--rice, produce, fish, fowl, meat, milk, flour, coffee--and their complex interconnections. In the process he considers the changing ecology of the region as well as the social fabric that weaves together farmers, merchants, transporters, storekeepers, and door-to-door vendors.
