Food Politics as a fairly deep study of the politics of the food industry in the Unite States. The book can best be catagorized as text book caliber in both look and feel. Despite the in depth research, the author, Marion Nestle (no relation to the food corporation), does her best to make the information accesabile and understandable to both the professional and the casual reader alike. To be fair, you shouldn't read this book casually. I am not a food professional but I have read on the topic extensivly and thus found the content of this book extremely informing. You would do better to read other less weighty topics of food business before taking this one on as a casual reader. The political, legal and industry jargon can can intense and long winded at times and may turn off someone with only a mild interest in the topic. However if the topic of the food industry in the US is right up your alley so is this book. It is thorougly informative and educational. Im quite certain this book is used in college level classrooms across the country.

This is a textbook and as such may be more than the casual reader will want, however, that being said, if you want a detailed, indepth analysis of the politics of food, this is your resource.
