Rate this:
McDonald's restaurants are found in over 100 countries, serving tens of millions of people each day. What are the cultural implications of this phenomenal success? The widely read-and widely acclaimed-Golden Arches East argues that McDonald's has largely become divorced from its American roots and become a "local" institution for an entire generation of affluent consumers in Hong Kong, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, and Tokyo. For the second edition, James L. Watson covers recent attacks on the fast food chain as a symbol of American imperialism, and the company's role in the obesity controversy currently raging in the U.S. food industry. The new edition also brings the story of East Asian franchises into the twenty-first century. Book jacket.
