Overview

Consumption and Its Consequences / Edition 1

This is a book for those looking for different answers to some of today's most fundamental questions. What is a consumer society? Does being a consumer make us more materialistic? Why do we shop? Miller responds to these questions by proposing feasible and currently available alternatives, mainly drawn from his own ethnographic research.
