5.0 out of 5 stars Earthshaking, January 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stuff (Paperback)
This is a spectacular book by the leading light of the field of material culture studies. Readable and entertaining, profound and provocative, Stuff ranges from the loftiest philosophy to the furnishings of the author's own living room (literally) and from India to the Caribbean. If you have any interest in the way you create and are created by the tangible things that surround you, this is a must-read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shaking the roots, March 10, 2011
By 
This review is from: Stuff (Paperback)
In Stuff, author Daniel Miller questions why another population should see things the same way as us. The author takes a look at the meaning of clothing for Trinidadian, Indian and Londoners. I still find it difficult to understand a culture where all is on the surface and maintaning the metaphorical 'depth' is unknown. And with just this shaking of ones accepted way of things, the author succeeds in bringing us out of our culture.
Next time you wear a saree, note if your body feels atleast 10 things about it.
