The Authority of the Consumer

Synopsis

This book examines the development of consumer society and, in particular, considers the way that this development changes the nature and meaning of cultural relationships of authority. The chapters examine the issue theoretically but also consider it in a variety of spheres from education to advertising, from the police to design and from consumer organizations to museums.
