From the Publisher"The anthology presents a highly engaging sample of divergent viewpoints. . . . The strengths of the anthology are in the analytical breadth of its essays. "—Kathleen D. Toerpe, McHenry County College, History: Reviews of New Books, July 12, 2000.
"The book mixes the agenda-setting works of established historians and cultural critics . . . with case studies provided by younger scholars. . . and historians not usually associated with works on consumption. . . as well as statements made on the nature of consumerism by journalists and activists. . . Glickman has provided a group of essays potentially more representative of future explorations into consumer society. . . His book will be an extremely useful introduction to the current research on consumer history."—Matthew Hilton, Birmingham University. Business History, October 2000
"This thoughtful and solidly documented collection looks at consumption with an eye both to the past and to the world. . . Comprising 24 excellently chosen selections . . . the book enables the reader to see both how consumption changed over time, and how the analysis of consumption has changed over time."—Sidney W. Mintz, Johns Hopkins University. Labor History, Vol. 42, No. 1, 2001
