El Dilema del Omnivoro: En Busca de la Comida Perfecta / The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

Michael Pollan, Raul Nagore

En este revolucionario libro, Michael Pollan, uno de los escritores mas brillantes, originales y elocuentes de Estados Unidos, aborda la aparentemente sencilla pregunta de que deberiamos comer, ofreciendonos unas respuestas que tienen profundas implicaciones politicas, economicas, psicologicas e incluso morales para todos nosotros. ?Que cenaremos hoy? Nos hemos confrontado a esta pregunta desde que el hombre descubrio el fuego, pero para Michael Pollan la manera en que la abordamos hoy en dia podria llegar a determinar nuestra supervivencia en cuanto a especie. El hecho de que seamos omnivoros y podamos ingerir todo tipo de alimentos hace que nuestro acto de decidir que queremos comer se vuelva un dilema, sobre todo ante la abundancia de productos que nos ofrece el desconcertante y traicionero mercado alimenticio. Cuando escogemos nuestro tipo de alimentacion, no solamente entra en juego la salud propia o la de nuestros hijos, sino la de todo el medioambiente. Escrito de manera excelente y profusamente argumentado, El dilema del omnivoro promete cambiar nuestra percepcion sobre las politicas alimenticias y el placer de la comida. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION One of the New York Times Book Review’s Ten Best Books of the Year Winner of the James Beard Award Author of How to Change Your Mind and the #1 New York Times Bestsellers In Defense of Food and Food Rules What should we have for dinner? Ten years ago, Michael Pollan confronted us with this seemingly simple question and, with The 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 Dilemma continues to transform the way Americans think about the politics, perils, and pleasures of eating.
