Question
Answered

I need 2-3 pages research paper, on Eric Schlosser book " Fast Food Nation". Just need to

look up a critical review of Fast Food Nation. The review should focus on the nature of Schloser’s evidence – that is, how well does his research hold up to scrutiny? This should be from a credible source, such as a scholarly journal or a reputable periodical, written by a professional reviewer. (No reader comments on Amazon or some similar site, please! They can be interesting, but they do not count as a professional source.) Thus, we will be looking at Schlosser’s rhetoric: the strategies he uses to persuade his audience, his writing style, and his use of sources. His use of language and his way of arguing reveal his assumptions, biases, and purposes. Focusing on a specific chapter in the “Meat and Potatoes” section of Fast Food Nation, write a paper that analyzes Schlosser’s rhetoric in that chapter, paying careful attention to how he constructs his argument in the chapter and how he connects this chapter to his argument in the book as a whole. Please be sure to address his use of sources in the chapter you are addressing. Try to address other rhetorical strategies as well.

In thinking about Schlosser’s rhetoric, consider the following questions:

  • What are Schloseer’s dominant rhetorical strategies (for example, his use of narrative and biography --stories and life-histories -- his use of analogy, his use of sources, etc.) uses in this chapter?
  • How does he use them and to what effect?
  • Why does he make his argument in the ways that he does?
  • What does his use of these strategies say to us about his conception of audience? Of argumentation?
  • What purposes, assumptions, biases, are revealed in his use of these strategies?
  • Schlosser constructs a pretty clear path for readers to follow: How? Why this path? As a reader, how do you receive his message?
  • Now, consider the review you have read. Incorporate it into your essay.
  • Does your source confirm your assessment?
  • Contradict it?


( I ATTACHED CHAPTER 6 FROM THE CHAPTER ''MEAT AND POTATOES'' . I AM OKAY WITH WRITING JUST RESEARCH PAPER ON ANY TOPIC BUT TO ADRESS THESE QUESTION IN THE PAPER IS REALLY HARD, I JUST HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO WRITE IT )
