Born with a Copper Spoon examines how the metal has been produced, distributed, controlled, and sold around the globe over the last two centuries. Fourteen chapters cover North America, Latin America, Europe, Central Africa, the Middle East, East Asia and Oceania. The world depends on copper and this book examines how we get it.
The book is now available from University of British Columbia Press.
Funding was provided by the Fate of Nations group at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and the group kindly hosted the workshop that the book developed from.
