Description
 
Shopping is much more than the simple purchase of goods. As buying has become an essential part of life, shopping is irrevocably tied to our cultural identity, & we are a culture obsessed & beguiled by the desire for consumer goods. In this fascinating book, Klaffke reveals the ritual that is now daily routine. She provides an entertaining & provocative study of shopping’s rich & enduring history, from Parisian arcades to American shopping malls, from the inventions of cash registers & shopping carts to the varied shopping customs around the world, from game shows to Internet shopping & auction sites. Full of informative sidebars & fascinating photos, this book documents how shopping has evolved from a need, to a want, to a sport. Illus.
