The Dark Side of the All-American Meal
Add to Wish List
Fast food has hastened the malling of our landscape, widened
the chasm between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of
obesity, and propelled American cultural imperialism abroad.
That's a lengthy list of charges, but Eric Schlosser
makes them stick with an artful mix of first-rate reportage,
wry wit, and careful reasoning.
myth-shattering survey stretches from California's
subdivisions, where the business was born, to the industrial
corridor along the New Jersey Turnpike, where many of fast
food's 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.
