Overview

In a volume dedicated to Erich Fromm, "who pointed the way toward an understanding of psychology and consumer culture," psychologists Kasser (Knox College, Galesburg, IL) and Kanner (Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center, CA) introduce 13 chapters that aim to overcome the field's relative neglect of how consumption-related issues affect personal development, society, and ecology. US contributors discuss theoretical and clinical issues, and call for further research on compulsive buying, the effects of advertising, and mindfulness as an antidote to its effects.
