This is a short paper following the fast food industry from its origins in southern California until it present status. Particular interest is paid to the political and corporate aspects of the industry as to how it has grown to its current dominance.

From the Paper:

"In his book Eric Schlosser investigates the origins and the dominance of the fast food phenomenon as it pertains to American culture. Schlosser makes a convincing argument exposing the large corporations and their dominance regarding the dietary choices of most Americans. Throughout the book a background theme of corporate manipulation of the American public provides subtle nuances into just how they grew as fast as they did. He eloquently iterates the progression of the industry from its modest conception in southern California to its now leviathonesque stature as a keystone of our modern economy.
