(Reaktion Books; 2008)

"Where Schweid excels in is his wonderfully illustrated historical account of the use that man has made of the eel, a story that extends from prehistory . . . to the gross abuse of the eel resource at the hand of global markets and intensive aquaculture. Eel is a book to be enjoyed and often reread, a social history of real substance which echoes the best of Victorian writing."

Times Literary Supplement

"This pretty little book tells you all you could wish to know about the natural history and the culinary history of this delicious, disappearing fish."
