about this item

This introductory text describes the relationship between consumer culture and US society from a sociological perspective. It addresses the historical context; the three dimensions of consumption (objects, subjects, and places); case studies of food, tourism, and higher education in terms of these concepts; ethical issues associated with mass consumerism and various forms of consumer activism, such as boycotts, buycotts, the role of consumer debt, and the do-it-yourself movement; and the globalization of consumer culture, with a focus on China and India.
