Product description

Cambridge University Press, 1998, first edition. Edited by Strasser S, McGovern C and Judt M. Paperback, condition: used very good+. The developing history of consumption is not so much a separate field, as a prism through which many aspects of social and political life may be viewed. The essays in this collection represent a variety of approaches, discussing products, corporate strategies, government policies, and ideas about consumption. They represent a variety of approaches in Europe and America; raising such themes as consumption and democracy, the development of a global economy, the role of the state, the centrality of consumption to Cold War politics, the importance of the Second World War as a historical divide, the language of consumption, the contexts of locality, race, ethnicity, gender, and class, and the environmental consequences of twentieth-century consumer society.
