The Everyday Life Reader brings together thinkers ranging from Freud to Baudrillard with primary sources such as the Mass Observation survey and key texts by Michel de Certeau and Henri Lefebvre. It thus provides a complete and comprehensive resource on theories of everyday life. Highmore's introduction surveys the development of thought about everyday life, setting theories in their social and historical context. Each themed section opens with an essay introducing the debates. Sections include: *Situating the everyday *Everyday life and 'national culture' *Ethnography near and far *Reclamation work *Everyday things.
