Peter Macinnis turned to writing after his promising career as a chiaroscuro player was tragically cut short by a caravaggio crash during the Trompe L'Oeil endurance race. He recently did remarkably well in the early rounds of the celebrity underwater cooking program, Moister Chef, but he was disqualified for using dried fruits and desiccated coconut.

This social and historical exploration traces the history of sugarcane from its home in New Guinea to Shakespeare’s England. The history of this one crop becomes in Macinnis' hands a history of European empire building. Later details of production seem a little scanted.

The breadth of the connections Macinnis weaves through his tale continually surprises, all the more because the substance sugar is so deceptively simple that, before this book, we have taken it for granted. He has put his encyclopaedic knowledge to excellent use, placing science and technology naturally in a social context. Dr Peter Pockley, Australasian Correspondent for Nature.

"The Lawn: A Social History" explores the strange coming-together of means, opportunity and motive in the middle of the nineteenth century, and the lasting social changes that followed when the lawn emerged as the dominant feature of the modern built environment. After the lawn, leisure time would never be the same again. This book explains, in fascinating detail, how the lawn mower was the key enabling technology that let grass dominate the environment. And how, the enabling technology that in turn allowed suburbs to exist was commuter transport - as only suburbs gave enough space between and around the houses for lawns to fit. The author goes on to explain how mowers and suburbs would not have been enough to drive the lawn craze if people had not firmly believed that ownership of a lawn was proof that the owner was a person of status and wealth. "The Lawn: A Social History" takes the reader on a compelling journey that explains the origins of the lawn and how it changed the very way we live. Illustrated with contemporary images, this absorbing exposition on how the lawn, which we all take for granted, has become an integral part of our very existence.
