Consumption and Everyday Life by Dr. Mark Paterson
Book DescriptionIntroducing all the key ideas and major theorists of consumption in a lively and engaging manner, this book draws on theories of everyday life and aspects of sociology, cultural geography and cultural studies, and presents a comprehensive exploration of the central themes in consumption and consumer culture. Readily accessible case studies describe familiar forms of consumption from areas of everyday life, grounding the debates and ideas discussed. Key topics covered include: * the semiotics of branding and advertising * the representation of 'nature' and the environment * the relations between consumer and producer * ethical consumption * the tensions between local spaces of consumption and globalized markets. While each of the chapters crystallize the debate in a specific subject area, they also lie within a larger argument concerning the ethics, the poetics and the politics of consumption in everyday life, making this essential reading for undergraduates on cultural studies, sociology and cultural geography courses.

Touching Space, Placing Touch, Hardback (October 2012)
Given that touch and touching is so central to everyday embodied existence, why has it been largely ignored by social scientists for so long? This volume has a strong thematic identity and therefore represents the formative collection concerning the multiple senses of touch within social science scholarship.
