Description - Consumption by Robert Bocock

Consumption provides a critical overview of major sociological approaches to the process of consumption, in both modern and postmodern societies. It develops a distinctive analysis of consumption as socio-cultural process, and of the ideology of consumerism. Bocock examines the role of consumption in early modern western society, and analyses the emergence of consumption in the early twentieth century. This historical analysis provides the launching pad for an analysis of consumption between the 1950s and the present day. The author examines the contribution of leading writers in the field, including Veblen, Simmel, Marx, Gramsci, Weber, Bourdieu, Lacan and Baudrillard.
