The Dedalus Book of Absinthe

Author: Phil Baker

Beginning with the 1905 Absinthe Murders, this book offers a cultural history of absinthe, from its modest origins as a herbal tonic through to its luxuriantly morbid heyday in the late nineteenth century.

The Dedalus Book of Absinthe received more than 50 book reviews and has been the subject of universal acclamation. It offers over two hundred years of cultural history packed into a bottle of absinthe.
