For God, country, and Coca-Cola : the unauthorized history of the great American soft drink and the company that makes it by Mark Pendergrast( Book )

91 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did an innocuous soft drink, more than 99% sweetened water, come to be regarded as "the sublimated essence of all that America stands for"? For God, Country and Coca-Cola is a cultural, social, and economic history of America as seen through the green glass of a Coke bottle. And what a quintessentially American tale it is. Coca-Cola began humbly as a patent medicine amid the fervor and chaos of Reconstruction Atlanta. A shrewd marketeer saw its value as a beverage, and it rapidly grew through the Gilded Age to become the dominant consumer product of the American Century. The key to Coca-Cola's success was ubiquitous advertising, as the Company's master myth-makers first created and then quenched the thirst of a nation. And when World War II carried American troops overseas, the soft drink went as well, laying the foundation for an enduring and lucrative presence
Uncommon grounds : the history of coffee and how it transformed our world by Mark Pendergrast( Book )

40 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 2,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Coffee has been banned as a creator of revolutionary sedition, vilified as the worst health-destroyer on earth and praised as the boon of mankind. Its history provides a window through which to view broader themes of colonialism and culture clash, the rise of mass production, modern-day media and marketing, women's issues and international commodity schemes. It also illustrates how an entire industry can lose focus, allowing upstart micro-roasters to reclaim quality and profits." "Mark Pendergrast enlivens his scrupulously researched history with anecdotes, eccentric characters and period commentary that will give readers stories to share - over good cups of coffee - for years to come."--Jacket

Beyond fair trade : how one small coffee company helped transform a hillside village in Thailand by Mark Pendergrast( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Akha hill Tribe of Thailand has a long, tumultuous history. Politics, economics, and land development consistently worked against the Akha's desire to move away from their dependency on opium production and create a stable future for their children. That all changed in 2006 when prominent businessman John Darch met with entrepreneur Wicha Promyong. Their meeting resulted in the establishment of an equal partnership business venture that goes beyond fair trade: the Doi Chaang Coffee Company. Beyond Fair Trade tells the story of the growth of this unique partnership, its successes and challenges, and the people behind it."--

The cola conquest a trilogy( Visual )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This program is about America, capitalism, the homogenisation of global culture, the politics of business, the business of politics and the selling of an image above substance. Mostly, though, it delineates the irony of the way which Coca-Cola - a sugary nutritionally empty, soft drink - has come to represent the American way of life, with its promotion of sugary rhetoric and ideals. The first episode concentrates on the selling of image over substance, of manufactured desire over need. It looks at the battle of images between Coke and Pepsi through a century of advertising campaigns. The second episode takes us from the launch of Pepsi's new blue campaign in England to the former Soviet Union where young Russians are learning to be capitalists. It also introduces Robert Woodruff who made Coca-Cola a symbol of everything America stands for. The third episode covers the spread of America's soft drinks throughout the world. Have Coke and Pepsi become the avatar for the homogenization of world culture?"--ABC-TV program guide
