AUTHOR

Miller, Daniel, Carter, Anthony

SUMMARY

Shopping is generally considered to be a pleasurable activity. But in reality it can often be complicated and frustrating. Daniel Miller explores the many contradictions faced by shoppers on a typical street in London, and in the process offers a sophisticated examination of the way we shop, and what it reveals about our relationships to our families and communities, as well as to the environment and the economy as a whole. Miller's companions are mostly women who confront these contradictions as they shop. They placate their children with items that combine nutrition with taste or usefulness with style. They decide between shopping at the local store or at the impersonal, but less expensive, mall. They tell of their sympathy for environmental concerns but somehow avoid much ethical shopping. They are faced with a selection of shops whose shifts and mergers often reveal extraordinary stories of their own. Filled with entertaining--and thoroughly familiar--stories of shoppers and shops, this book will interest scholars across a broad range of disciplines.Miller, Daniel is the author of 'Dialectics of Shopping' with ISBN 9780226526485 and ISBN 0226526488.
