Summary
The current 'obesity epidemic' has been at the top of the national and, increasingly, global public agenda for the last decade - the subject of extensive and intensive concern, scrutiny, and corrective efforts from various quarters. In the United States, much of this attention is predicated on the 'official' account of obesity - that it is a matter of personal responsibility, specifically to the end of monitoring and ensuring appropriate caloric balance. However, even though it continues to have cultural presumption, that account does not resonate with the populace, which may explain why efforts of redress have been notoriously ineffective. In this book, the author places obesity in cultural, political, and economic context.--
