Editorial Reviews


' an accessible and well-disposed inquiry into the impacts of consumption on contemporary cities and urban ways of life...Consuming Cities makes for interesting reading. It successfully frames some fairly complex theoretical issues within a variety of often interesting and always well-chosen cases. The book is excellent reading material for both graduate and undergraduate students, serving not only to bring together a variety of approaches from within the sociology of consumption, urban studies and cultural studies, but also as an eye-opener to some of the problems that an ongoing commodification of city life might pose to us as citizen's, consumers or planners of contemporary cities.' - Acta Sociologica
