Cover image for Jonathan E Robins, Oil Palm: a Global History

My new book on the global history of the oil palm industry has a cover and a release date! Look for it in June 2021, from the University of North Carolina Press. Preorder now to take advantage of a 40% discount off the list price!

Tracing the history of the oil palm tree out of its homeland in Africa, the book explores the origins of world trade in palm oil, the role of palm oil in industrialization, and the development of a global oil palm plantation industry.
