The Consumer Society : Myths and Structures Hardback
Part of the Published in Association with Theory, Culture & Society series
Jean Baudrillard's classic text was one of the first to focus on the process and meaning of consumption in contemporary culture. Originally published in 1970, the book makes a vital contribution to current debates on consumption.
The book includes Baudrillard's most organized discussion of mass media culture, the meaning of leisure, and anomie in affluent society.
A chapter on the body demonstrates Baudrillard's extraordinary prescience for flagging vital subjects in contemporary culture long before others.
This English translation begins with a new introductory essay.
