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

"Investigative reporter Eric Schlosser is a regular correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly. Schlosser's first book, the best-selling Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal, grew out of an article assignment for Rolling Stone. The magazine's editors had read one of Schlosser's earlier articles, 'In the Strawberry Fields' (which examined the plight of migrant workers and the rise of illegal immigrants in the United States by focusing on the strawberry industry) and were interested in a similar article concentrating on the fast-food business."
