Honey has been waiting almost ten million years for a good biography. Bees have been making this prized food - for centuries the world's only sweetener - for millennia, but we humans started recording our fascination with it only in the past few thousand years. Part history, part love letter, Robbing the Bees is a celebration of bees and their magical produce, revealing the varied roles of bees and honey in nature, world civilization, business, and gastronomy.
