Virtual book talk: Tea War: A History of Capitalism in China and India, March 3rd at 5:30 pm ET
Join us for a talk by Dr. Andrew Liu (Villanova University), author of Tea War: A History of Capitalism in China and India (Yale Press), next March 3rd at 5:30 pm ET.
Tea today remains the world's most consumed commercial beverage. Throughout its modern history, tea has connected the fates of growers, workers, and managers across Asia and the postcolonial world, especially those in coastal China and eastern India. This talk explores the history of competition between the Chinese and colonial Indian tea industries across the past two centuries, leveraging the story of its production, consumption, and global circulation to offer a fresh and compelling account of capitalist accumulation.
