What should we have for dinner? Ten years ago, Michael Pollan confronted us with this seemingly simple question and, withThe Omnivore s Dilemma, his brilliant and eye-opening exploration of our food choices, demonstrated that how we answer it today may determine not only our health but our survival as a species.In the years since, Pollan s revolutionary examination has changed the way Americans think about food. Bringing wide attention to the little-known but vitally important dimensions of food and agriculture in America, Pollan launched a national conversation about what we eat and the profound consequences that even the simplest everyday food choices have on both ourselves and the natural world. Ten years later, The Omnivore s Dilemmacontinues to transform the way Americans think about the politics, perils, and pleasures of eating."
