Pressestimmen

Recommended. CHOICE Mark Moss enters various sites of consumption in his study of shopping as a leisure activity arousing pleasure and stimulation. To his credit, Moss avoids belittling shoppers' desires to show how people occupy a position precariously balanced between being subject and object; each exhibiting its own form of agency. He draws on theorists from Benjamin to Weber, concepts from Turner's liminality to Debord's spectacle, all written in a style that will engage scholar and student alike. No matter your economic politics, personal tastes, or feelings about shopping-regardless of what you buy-you will likely find someone who looks disturbingly like yourself in this book... -- Daniel S. Traber, Texas A&M University at Galveston; Author of Whiteness, Otherness, and the Individualism Paradox from Huck to Punk Mark Moss enters various sites of consumption in his study of shopping as a leisure activity arousing pleasure and stimulation.
