Consumer society : critical issues and environmental consequences [Monograph]Table of contents
Smart, B. \ 2010
consumer behaviour - consumer economics - consumption

What factors are contributing to the continuing growth in consumption of goods and services? At what point do the costs associated with consumerism begin to call our way of life into question? How are the problems of resource depletion, waste and pollution, and environmental impact being addressed? What is to be done about the consequences of our all-consuming way of life? Ever-increasing consumption and a relentless pursuit of growth in output are the twin pillars on which the modern economy and contemporary social life rest. But the consumer way of life is globally unsustainable. We can't all live the consumer dream.

In zijn bekende essay Het multiculturele drama uit 2000 liet Paul Scheffer zien hoezeer in Nederland langs elkaar heen wordt geleefd. Zijn beschouwing leidde tot een groot maatschappelijk debat. In de loop der jaren werkte hij zijn ideeën uit en het resultaat is een breed opgezette zoektocht naar wat zich afspeelt onder de oppervlakte van de multiculturele samenleving. Niet alleen in Nederland, maar ook elders in Europa, en in Amerika. Het land van aankomst is een hartstochtelijk pleidooi om de huidige impasse te begrijpen en te overwinnen.

The sociology of consumption : a global approach [Monograph]
Stillerman, J. \ 2015
consumption - consumer behaviour - sociology - economic sociology - world

This book offers college students, scholars, and interested readers a state-of-the-art overview of consumption the desire for, purchase, use, display, exchange, and disposal of goods and services. The book’s global focus, emphasis on social inequality, and analysis of consumer citizenship offer a timely, exciting, and original approach to the topic. Looking beyond the U.S. and Europe, Stillerman engages examples from his and others’ research in Chile and other Latin American countries, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and East and South Asia to explore the interaction between global and local forces in consumption. The text explores the lived experience of being a consumer, demonstrating how social inequalities based on class, gender, sexuality, race, and age shape consumer practices and identities. Finally, the book uncovers the important role consumption has played in fueling local and international activism.
