 About the Book 

The New York Times bestseller that blew the lid off the fast food industry--exposing how it has malled our landscape, widened the gap between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of obesity, and propelled American cultural imperialism abroad--with a new afterword from the masterful muckraker who started it all, Eric Schlosser.Schlossers myth-shattering survey stretches from Californias subdivisions, where the business was born, to the industrial corridor along the New Jersey Turnpike, where many of fast foods flavors are concocted. Along the way, he unearths a trove of fascinating, unsettling truths--from the unholy alliance between fast food and Hollywood to the seismic changes the industry has wrought in food production, popular culture, and even real estate. On its publication, Fast Food Nation changed the way America thinks about the way it eats, and it continues to inform and inspire readers concerned about the dramatic impact fast food has on our economy and our health.
