Food Inc.: How Industrial Food Is Making Us Sicker, Fatter, and Poorer -- And What You Can Do about It: A Participant Guideby Karl Weber
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Food, Inc. is guaranteed to shake up our perceptions of what we eat. This powerful documentary deconstructing the corporate food industry in America was hailed by Entertainment Weekly as more than a terrific movie—its an important movie.” Aided by expert commentators such as Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, the film poses questions such as: Where has my food come from, and who has processed it? What are the giant agribusinesses and what stake do they have in maintaining the status quo of food production and consumption? How can I feed my family healthy foods affordably?
Expanding on the films themes, the book Food, Inc. will answer those questions through a series of challenging essays by leading experts and thinkers. This book will encourage those inspired by the film to learn more about the issues, and act to change the world.
A unique movie tie-in guide, this collection of essays goes behind the scenes and deeper into the issues and ideas raised by the provocative documentary on the contemporary way of eating. Contributors include Eric Schlosser, Michael Pollan, Anna Lapp, and others.
