Integrating contemporary literary analysis with globalization studies, Global Appetites explores the extent that agribusiness, industrial agriculture, and countercultural food movements underpin American conceptions of global power. This interdisciplinary study will appeal to scholars of American literature and culture as well as those working in the fields of food studies, food policy, agriculture history, social justice, and the environmental humanities.
