  • Der Konsumentby Marie-Kristin Franke

    Springer 2014; US$ 6.99

    ?Konsumenten fokussieren bei der Auswahl und Bewertung eines hedonischen Produktes (z.B. Sußigkeiten, Hotelzimmer mit Meerblick) maßgeblich auf dessen emotionale Bedeutung. Es gilt vereinfacht: Dinge, die sich gut anfuhlen, mussen begehrenswert sein und Nutzen stiften und vice versa. Somit orientieren sich Konsumenten im Kontext hedonisch gepragter... more...

  • Vielen Dank für Ihren Einkaufby Sabine Fabo; Melanie Kurz

    transcript 2014; US$ 18.52

    Auch mit der jüngsten Finanzkrise hat die Konsumkultur nichts von ihrer Bedeutung als massenkulturelles Phänomen eingebüßt. Im Gegenteil: Das aktuelle Krisenbewusstsein sucht Halt im Konsum, der seinen Verfechtern noch immer als Modell demokratischer Teilhabe an gesellschaftlicher Produktion gilt. Zugleich ist die Konsumkritik der 1960er Jahre in Richtung... more...

  • Economic Abundanceby William M. Dugger; James T. Peach

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 49.95

    Most principles of economics texts are predicated narrowly on the concept of scarcity as a fundamental force, but that is only one aspect of economics. This supplemental text for basic and intermediate level undergraduates provides a serious discussion of the concept of abundance - what it means, how we can move toward it, and what keeps us from doing... more...

  • Noch lange nicht Methusalem!by Lothar Abicht

    W. Bertelsmann Verlag 2007; US$ 18.07

    Wiley 2013; US$ 69.95

    Over-consumption is one of the key issues of our time, especially in the Western world. Over the past decade, in the face of historically unprecedented levels of consumer spending in the West - and the more recent impact of recession - a vigorous politics of anti-consumerism has emerged in a range of wealthy nations. This timely and original new... more...

  • The World of Consumptionby Ben Fine; Ellen Leopold

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 54.95

    In the opinion of many people the last decade saw the arrival of the `consumer society'. However, the response of social theory to consumerism has been barely appropriate to the scale of the changes. As an antidote to this, the authors propose the adoption of a new, more inclusive theoretical approach, based on "systems of provision". This emphasises... more...

  • Consumption in Asiaby Beng-Huat Chua

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 65.95

    The essays in this collection challenge conventional ideas about consumption and consumerism: they consider if the inundation of Western consumer goods have created identity confusions among the affluent in Asia, and if the expansion of consumer culture really does threaten the stability of politically anti-liberal states in Asia. This is the first... more...
