Review:

'An entertainingly educational story of scientific exploration, political filibustering, profiteering skulduggery and a disaster that was nearly total... This is not just a book for wine buffs. An intoxicating read.' Peter Millar, The Times

'The extraordinary tale of how France's wine industry was saved from a devastating plague by the New World.' Daily Mail

'Such are Christy Campbell's superb story-telling skills that, notwithstanding my woeful ignorance of science, botany and viticulture, I found myself utterly hooked on this fascinating piece of social history.' Hugh Massingberd, Daily Telegraph

'As Christy Campbell shows so vividly, the desperate search for both cause and cure involves all the elements of a good thriller... such a good read.' Joanna Simon, Sunday Times

'Phylloxera is a rattling good read; the author handles scientific material with such a nimble touch that at no point was I overcome by the onslaught of entomological detail.' Giles MacDonogh, Literary Review
