    Book synopsis: Dream, desire, buy, consume, throw away! We consume to live, yet we all consume to do much more than just live. Stressing the variety of ways in which consumption is structured and organised through cultures and showing how these cultural technologies construct the person, the senses and the self, this book stands at the interface of the sociologies of culture and consumption. Arranged in two parts - `Homes and Households, Places and Spaces', and `Technologies of Consumption and Waste' - the book includes chapters on youth consumption, cultures of the household, photography, pornography, music, information technology, and waste and rubbish. This book will be of interest to all concerned with the study of culture and consumption, whether from sociological, cultural, political or psychological perspectives.
