'Object Lessons' is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things.
'Object Lessons' is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic.
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 burgers 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.
