Little Monsters: (de)coupling Assemblages of Consumption
LIT Verlag Münster, 2007 - Social Science - 183 pages
This book is about stories of consumption beyond the culture-economy divide. By bringing along Actor Network Theory, entities that in conventional approaches are taken for granted, such as consumers, goods and companies proves to be unstable assemblages of humans, goods and technologies. This collection challenges most of the common places about consumption, production, markets and consumers.
