The impact of fast food

Dr. John Nolt, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Tennessee, discusses the classic Fast food nation: the dark side of the all-American meal by Eric Schlosser, a book that remains relevant today. Schlosser examines the impact of fast food from every angle, including farming practices, land use, labor, transportation, culture, and globalization. Now over a decade since it was published, Fast food nation demonstrates its "sustainability" as library patrons continue to check it out. (Recorded July 21, 2010)
