Culture and Consumption: New Approaches to the Symbolic Character of Consumer Goods and Activities Reviews
Unravels the history of consumerism/consumption which finds its genesis in the Elizabethan/Tudor Dynasty. Fascinating read; reveals that at first, consumption was used as a way to manipulate the masses. sad that our entire culture is now based on it. highly recommend.
A classic connecting societal influences in our consumption behavior.
Famous Diderot effect in here.
