The Politics of Fat book. This book brings the point home by focusing on the vexing issue of dietary fat content - known to be a health menace but also an ingredient in many or most of our best-loved foods.

Public policy is what government does, the action that a government takes (or does not take) to respond to a problem.

Sims explores the politics of food assistance programs (with a case study of the National School Lunch program); agricultural policy (for example, the price premium paid to farmers for milk with high butterfat content); food content (with case studies of food labeling and the approval process for fat substitutes); and dietary change (with a case study. of nutrition education programs). Policy-in some form or another-affects each of us in our everyday lives, touching us in the most unexpected moment or the most mundane of circumstances.

Increasingly, public administration practitioners and academicians are faced with demands from politicians and citizens that government should be operated like a business. By this they mean it should be cost efficient. An important aspect of public administration of any modern state is it is not properly and efficiently managed. In the 1970s and 1980s the US policy-makers have introduced another model and it is known as New Public Management. Our point is there is always a problem in public administration. I have already pointed out that the impact of economic problem and crises always falls upon administration.

Politics pervades every link in the food chain from the farm to the fork. It influences what foods we eat, how much they cost, what we know about them, and how safe they are. This book brings the point home by focusing on the vexing issue of dietary fat content - known to be a health menace but also an ingredient in many or most of our best-loved foods. Through this prism, Dr. Sims explores the politics of food assistance programmes (with a case study of the National School Lunch programme); agricultural policy (for example, the price premium paid to farmers for milk with high butterfat content); food content (with case studies of food labelling and the approval process for fat substitutes); and dietary change (with a case study of nutrition education programmes). The book concludes with consideration of the costs and benefits of government intervention and nonintervention in food policy from the supply side to the demand side and its consequences for human health (and happiness). "The Politics of Fat" shows how government policy affects not only breakfast, lunch and dinner, but also our between-meal snacks; explores the nexus of health policy and agricultural policy from price supports to trade policy; and is written in an accessible style enlivened by discussion-provoking case studies.
