Inhaltsangabe: Book by Cortes Ricardo

Críticas: "Cortes' presentation is not the typical dense, non-fiction work, but a highly illustrated one, where emotions and impact are present in brief graphical terms, dancing with the harder history, and with a meticulous bibliography."
--"North Adams Transcript"
"It's impressive how much information Cortes is able to include . . . His illustrations are beautiful, detail-rich colored pencil and pen drawings, and his hand-lettering of typed documents is fantastic."
--"Persephone Magazine"
"Cortes' latest, "A Secret History of Coffee, Coca & Cola," uses a combination of gritty, mural-like illustrations and painstaking investigative research to explore the relationship between three of the most famous stimulants of all time: coffee, coca leaves (from which cocaine is an alkaloid derivative) and Coca-Cola."
--"Metro"
"Cortes gained popular stature last year with his sweetly counterpoint art in satiric "Go the F**k to Sleep." That's part of his genius: giving the eye important information barely hinted at in the text...[T]he paintings themselves delve more deeply into the facts that the nonfiction text addresses."
--"School Library Journal blog"
"This book is an incredible work of artistic journalism. Armed with color pencils and an eye for detail, Cortes has produced a beautiful and subversive history of how that bottle of Coke ended up in your fridge. Cortes weaves his people's history with meticulously and gorgeously crafted drawings--many of them recreations of the primary documents he uses to tell his story. The end product is a damning, epic tale of hypocrisy: while the US government leads the charge to criminalize the 10 million people who chew coca, it has simultaneously conspired with a multinational beverage giant to ensure an endless supply of coca to fuel its profits."
--Jeremy Scahill, author of "Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army"
"Ricardo Cortes has unearthed documentation of the asto

""A Secret History of Coffee, Coca & Cola."..is actually a serious and measured chronology of the storied history of these human beverages, accessible to readers of all ages...A sober, serious, yet eminently readable examination of thorny social issues surrounding everyday beverages, "A Secret History of Coffee, Coca & Cola" is highly recommended.
--"Midwest Book Review"
"If you have ever wondered about the coca in Coca-Cola, the caffeine in coffee, or the irrational pharmacological prejudices in our drug laws, this charmingly eccentric combination of detailed historical research and child-friendly drawings is worth your attention. ["A Secret History of Coffee, Coca & Cola"] is easily digested and full of interesting details about how psychoactive substance come to be accepted or rejected."
