Consumption provides a critical overview of major sociological approaches to this subject, discussing it in the context of both modern and postmodern societies. Robert Bocock offers a distinctive analysis of the ideology of consumerism and the role of consumption as a socio-cultural process. Bocock first examines the role of consumption in early modern Western society, and then analyzes its emergence in the early 20th century up through the 1990s. He also examines the contributions of leading writers in the field, including Veblen, Simmel, Marx, Gramsci, Weber, Bourdieu, Lacan and Baudrillard.
