The SAGE Handbook of Consumer Culture

Olga Kravets, Edna Maclaran, Steven Miles, Alladi Venkatesh

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The question of consumption emerged as a major focus of research and scholarship in the 1990s but the breadth and diversity of consumer culture has not been fully enough explored. The meanings of consumption, particularly in relation to lifestyle and identity, are of great importance to academic areas including business studies, sociology, cultural and media studies, psychology, geography and politics.

The SAGE Handbook of Consumer Culture is an instructive resource for scholars and students of consumption, where the key dimensions of consumer culture are critically discussed and articulated.
