Spree: A Cultural History of Shopping
Pamela Klaffke (au)
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.
