Now available in a paperback edition, Consumption and the World of Goods offers a new interpretation of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, one that shapes a new historical landscape based on the consumption of goods and services. Leading specialists from the United States and Europe focus on problems of methodology and historiography, goods and consumption, production and the meaning of possessions, literacy and numeracy, books, newspapers, objects and images. The result is a rich new direction in early modern cultural and social history. Contributors: Jean-Christophe Agnew, Joyce Appleby, T.H. Breen, John Brewer, Peter Burke, Colin Campbell, Patricia Cline Cohen, David Cressy, Jan de Vries, Cissie Fairchilds, C.Y. Ferdinand, Iaroslav Isaievych, Sidney Mintz, John Money, Chandra Mukerji, Jeremy D. Popkin, Roy Porter, Simon Schaffer.
