Big Sugar: Seasons in the Cane Fields of Florida
Author/Editor: Alec Wilkinson
ISBN: 0394573129
Year Published: 1989
Format: Hardcover, Paperback 
Description: This documentary of the life of Florida's sugarcane workers should be required reading for every legislator voting on the sugar industry's subsidies, every citizen living in the State of Florida, and every person who consumes sugar in the U.S. As the book is focused social ills, it subsequently fails to adequately address the issue of the crop's environmental damage; and while it is a bit dated, it is yet a compelling look at the darker side of sugar.
