Consumption and Everyday Life : 2nd edition, Paperback / softback Book

Consumption and Everyday Life : 2nd edition Paperback / softback

Description

With an emphasis on everyday life, this respected text offers a lively and perceptive account of the key theories and ideas which dominate the field of consumption and consumer culture.

Engaging case studies describe forms of consumption familiar to the student, provide some historical context, and illustrate how a range of theoretical perspectives - from theories of practice, to semiotics, to psychoanalysis - apply.

Written by an experienced teacher, the book offers a comprehensive grounding drawing on the literature in sociology, geography, cultural studies, and anthropology.

This new revised and expanded edition includes more extended discussion of gender, the senses, sustainability, globalization, and the environment, as well as a brand new chapter on the ethics of consumption.
