In response to Ebbie's questions of 15-Aug-01 2:07PM:

Brief synopsis: Fast Food Nation is about the fast food industry's effects on such things as agriculture, meat processing, social and cultural values, and the job market as it concerns unskilled labor and unionization. The book gives a brief history of the rise of the fast food industry and background on some of the major players.

The subject of fast food and its global effects seems to have been well researched and organized, although some of the statistics cited can make for dull reading. Too, the statistics at times cast a doubtful shadow over journalist Schlosser's objectivity.
