Consumption and Everyday Life

Edited by:
  • Hugh Mackay - Open University in Wales, United Kingdom


June 1997 | 368 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Reviewing key contemporary issues and debates about consumption, this accessible textbook portrays and assesses the varied and complex intersections of consumption and everyday life.

The rich and idiosyncratic nature of local consumption practices is illustrated through cases from different parts of the world. The contributors show the varying balance between constraint and creativity, links between consumption and production, and the patterns which shape access to symbolic and material resources.
