I have it listed as

"Krondl, Michael. The Taste of Conquest. The Rise and Fall of the Three Great Cities of Spice. New York: Ballantine Books, 2007. A volume with a totally different point of view, Krondl looks at the spice trade in the cities of Venice, Lisbon, and Amsterdam, with mentions given to modern Baltimore and Calcutta."

It doesn't attempt to cover anything, but it's rather interesting for the cities it does cover.
