Consumption and Class: Divisions and Change
Roger Burrows, Catherine Marsh
Palgrave Macmillan UK, Nov 19, 1991 - Social Science - 263 pages
An edited collection exploring divisions and changes within and between the spheres of consumption and production. Topics include: the relationship between consumption and production; the social construction of consumers; housing and social class mobility; health provision; the role of the 'service class'; and access to higher education. Peter Saunders' work provides the initial stimulus for many of the papers, but all go beyond his narrow conception of a sociology of consumption and his liberal analysis of patterns of social inequality.
