The Consumer Society : Myths and Structures, Hardback Book

The Consumer Society : Myths and Structures Hardback

Part of the Published in Association with Theory, Culture & Society series

Description

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.
