Ever since men first hunted for honeycomb in The Story Epub #181 rocks and daubed pictures of it on cave walls the honeybee has been seen as one of the wonders of nature social industrious beautiful terrifying No other creature has inspired in humans an identification so passionate persistent or fantastical The Hive recounts the astonishing tale of all the Maybe two and a half stars Some sections were interesting than others The author is a food writer and the best parts of this book are when she writes about honey's history and importance as a food or even as a medicine The chapter on politics really dragged The last chapter is on beekeeping and it lacks an overall summary or point for the book Not a bad book and certainly not badly written I'm just less interested in human appropriation of bees which is really what this book is about than in bees themselves

The Hive The Story of the Honeybee and UsWeird and The Hive MOBI #8608 wonderful things that humans believed about bees and their society over the ages It ranges from the honey delta of ancient Egypt to the Tupelo forests of modern Florida taking in a cast of characters including Alexander the Great and Napoleon Sherlock Holmes and Muhammed AliThe history of humans and honeybees is also a histor Another fine example of Bee Wilson's wonderful ability both to fully research a topic and to present that research in a fascinating and readable way I only found this book because I so enjoy Bee Wilson's writing I had received Consider the Fork as an ARC which led me to Swindled and both were so interesting and absorbing that I simply had to try her other work Bees are fascinating anyway so the subject was a good one and as always with Wilson's books I continually found vignettes and facts that I just had to share with the people around me The Hive is less about bees than it is a history of the human perspective on bees but in the process the reader learns an astounding amount about bees The context is well arranged with sections relating to the human experience as seen in mankind's view of bees throughout history As ever I recommend this book along with her others and hope that she's working on something new to come out soon
