Description - The Practice of Everyday Life by Pierre Mayol

To remain unconsumed by consumer society - this was the goal, pursued through a world of subtle and practical means, that beckoned throughout the first volume of "The Practice of Everyday Life". The second volume of the work delves even deeper into the tactics of resistance and private practices that make living a subversive art. It develops a social history of "making do" based on microhistories that move from the private sphere (of dwelling, cooking and homemaking) to the public (the experience of living in a neighbourhood).
