Consuming Behaviour

ISBN: 0333949927;
Издательство: Palgrave Macmillan

This text seeks to overcome an imbalance in traditional consumer behavior texts by incorporating biological, sociological, and anthropological theories into the core of the work. The aim is to provide a challenging and interesting book which addresses important issues such as time, space and consumption; consuming needs and values, semiotics, identity, the body, eating disorders and drug-taking. The text looks at consuming behavior in the context of general changes in society through adopting a historical perspective. It seeks to adopt a neutral view of consuming behavior rather than the more traditional adoption of the producers' perspective, and to look at the contemporary issues affecting consuming behavior in today's world.
