FULL-COLOR EDITION. Yes Virginia, pee really does have a history-a wild history which winds its golden stream through the origins of Count Dracula, the wool industry, ancient Hindu doctrine, cosmetics, unbelievably kinky sex, a major U.S Supreme Court decision, and Roman tax law. In these pages, you will discover that women's urine was supposed to be the secret weapon of the South during the American Civil War, that artworks created with the artist's pee have sold for millions of dollars and tankers of rancid piss used to ply the coast of England. Yes, you really can make a urine bomb, and right now you are using an ingredient found in pee to whiten your teeth. This richly illustrated volume will tell the story of this most familiar of liquids one which influenced people's lives and changed the history of the world.
