Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'The contributions provide full - and often stimulating discussions of the ways in which the individual subjects have developed their approaches towards consumption.' - Business History

'At last! A book on consumption that is empirically oriented and theoretically informed - and cares about the work it is describing. An impressive collection that also summarises the history of consumption studies as well as adding to it.' - J. Purkis, Manchester Metropolitan University

'Excellent up-to-date coverage of this rapidly developing field [with] cutting-edge authors.' - Dr. Simon Locke, Kingston University

'Excellent review of cross-disciplinary thought on consumption.' - Dr. D. W. Marshall, Edinburgh University

'Anyone wanting a basic textbook for consumption courses, or needing to grapple themselves with this new consensual object of study among the disciplines of the social sciences, should start here' - Andrew Blake, Times Higher Education Supplement

'Acknowledging Consumption is an invaluable introductory orientation to consumption studies in the social and human sciences, and we will certainly both be mining its rich veins of further reading for some time to come.' - Transactions
