    An interesting book that gives an interesting, albeit complex, summary of the development of consumption theory dating back to the industrial revolution. The book is, however, quite western-centric and some of the chapters will be extremely hard to read because of the heavy academic and philosophical terms that are not clearly defined by the author, so not recommended to everyone.

    Is split into 3 subsections, History, cultural theory and political implications of consumer culture. VERY hard read, as in really not good for students who don't have a stellar grasp of the English language (and that includes most US college students). I'm a mid 40's Ph.D and I had a bit of struggle following it because of the complexity of the embedded sentence structures and the use of words so obscure that they will probably never show up on an SAT exam.

I'm just starting my education in the field (my school wants me to teach it), but its discussions of history and anthropological theory (both my areas) correlate to what I already sort of knew -- but had never focused on directly. Lots of Pierre Bourdieu, Jean Baudrillard etc for the theory parts, discussions of consumerism not really existing as a cultural phenomena till the colonial age (1650's), the interplay between people and things, constructions of personal identity, how local cultures shift the meaning and usage of items, how even McD's is forced to modify to local markets, etc. A good read for a phd type wanting to dive into the deep end, but not really good for the average student (I think they're response will be to just stop reading and show up unprepared)
