Our Fast food Nation has hastened the malling of our landscape, widened the chasm between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of obesity, and propelled the juggernaut of American cultural imperialism abroad. That's a lengthy list of charges, but Eric Schlosser, an award-winning journalist makes them stick with an artful mix of fit-rate reportage, wry wit, and careful reasoning.

Schlosser unearths fascinating, unsettling truths -from the changes in food production, popular culture, the fast-food chains' efforts to reel in the youngest consumers and the exploitation of teenagers and minorities. Schlosser then turns a critical eye toward the topic of globalization -- a phenomenon launched by fast food.  

Fast Food Nation is a cultural history that continues to inform and inspire readers concerned about the dramatic impact fast food has on our economy and our health.
