Book Spotlight: Fast Food Nation

By June 22, 2012

Follow me on:

Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser is a book about how the fast food industry has shaped the American way of life. Since it's inception, fast food has widened the gap between the rich and the poor, fueled an obesity epidemic, and forced American cultural ideas abroad. Schlosser examines how all of this came to happen and uncovers many unsettling truths behind the fast food industry along the way. For instance, the fast food industry has single handedly changed how food is produced, shaped popular culture, and has even shaped the real estate industry. Read more about the book and why it is important sociologically.
