Fast Food Nation
The Dark Side of the All-American MealBook - 2012 | First Mariner Books edition
"In 2001, Fast Food Nation was published to critical acclaim and became an international bestseller. Eric Schlosser's expos ̌revealed how the fast food industry has altered the landscape of America, widened the gap between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of obesity, and transformed food production throughout the world. The book changed the way millions of people think about what they eat and helped to launch today's food movement. In a new afterword for this edition, Scholsser discusses the growing interest in local and organic food, the continued exploitation of poor workers by the food industry, and the need to ensure that every American has access to good, healthy, affordable food. Fast Food Nation is as relevant today as it was a decade ago. The book inspires readers to look beneath the surface of our food system, consider its impact on society and, most of all, think for themselves."--Back cover.
