BOOK SYNOPSIS: The burger, long the All-American meal, is undergoing an identity crisis. From its shifting place in popular culture to the efforts, by investors such as Bill Gates, to seek to find 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.

BIOGRAPHY: Carol J. Adams is the author of numerous books, including The Sexual Politics of Meat, Neither Man nor Beast: Feminism and the Defense of Animals and The Pornography of Meat. She is the co-editor of several path-breaking anthologies, including most recently Ecofeminism: Feminist Intersections with Other Animals and the Earth (with Lori Gruen). Her work is the subject of two recent anthologies, Defiant Daughters: 21 Women of Art, Activism, Animals, and The Sexual Politics of Meat and The Art of the Animal: 14 Women Artists Explore The Sexual Politics of Meat, in which a new generation of feminists, artists, and activists respond to Adams' groundbreaking work. www.caroljadams.com
