The book first chronicles the origins of the Slow Food movement in Italy in the 1980s followed by various outgrowths: e.g., Cittaslow (slow cities), slow fashion, slow travel, and slow parenting. The book explains why the slow movement is in many ways at odds with the prevalent American Dream so committed to growth, speed, and acceleration.

Mary Caputi is professor of political theory at California State University, Long Beach.
