Part of the Object Lessons series
Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things.
The burger, long the All-American meal, is undergoing an identity crisis.
From its shifting place in popular culture to efforts by investors such as Bill Gates to create the non-animal burger that can feed the world, the burger's identity has become as malleable as that patty of protein itself, before it is thrown on a grill.
Carol Adams's Burger is a fast-paced and eclectic exploration of the history, business, cultural dynamics, and gender politics of the ordinary hamburger. Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic.
