Contemporary urban consumption touches the everyday lives of most citizens and permeates discussion of society and culture today.
Consuming Cities looks at this topic from perspectives in both sociology and cultural theory, drawing together references from mainstream and also less obvious sources in both literatures.
Each chapter includes a specific case of a city or aspect of consumption, ranging from a history of urban consumption, gambling to the consumption of culture and
its place in tourism to the consumption palace of the cruise liner.
This definitive and accessible book will be an invaluable resource to a wide range of students.
