An exploration of contemporary fat politics from critical legal, cultural, and historical perspectives, this book is informed by an intersectional analysis of fat as it relates to race, class, and disability in the struggle for equal rights.


* Provides the missing intersectional analysis in theorizing fat liberation movements and is written by movement leaders with significant media experience

* Fills a timely, critical gap in the current field of fat studies by exploring the politics of fat through a legal lens

* Humanizes the victims of the war on fat by showing both its known and hidden casualties

* Includes short interviews and quoted scholarship from intellectual/academic and activist leaders thinking about fat liberation in diverse fields

* Offers opportunities for changemakers to re-envision organizing frameworks
