    New York Times Bestseller,

    With a New Afterword

    “Schlosser has a flair for dazzling scene-setting and an arsenal of startling facts . . .Fast Food Nation points the way but, to resurrect an old fast food slogan, the choice is yours.”—Los Angeles Times

    In 2001, Fast Food Nation was published to critical acclaim and became an international bestseller. Eric Schlosser’s expose 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, Schlosser 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.

    “As disturbing as it is irresistible . . . Exhaustively researched, frighteningly convincing . . . channeling the spirits of Upton Sinclair and Rachel Carson.”—San Francisco Chronicle

    “Schlosser shows how the fast food industry conquered both appetite and landscape.”—The New Yorker

    Eric Schlosser is a contributing editor for the Atlantic and the author ofFast Food Nation, Reefer Madness, and Chew on This (with Charles Wilson).

    • Really interesting

      Very interesting book about capitalism and politics more generally. It is my daughter's summer reading assignment, but I read it before she could. It is worth reading for anyone interested in business. My son bought a copy to read after hearing my review. Highly recommend. Quick read, but has substantive content.
