|Summary:||This book provides an in-depth psychological analysis of consumerism that draws from a wide range of theoretical, clinical, and methodological approaches. The contributors to this edited book demonstrate that consumerism and the culture that surround it exert profound and often undesirable effects both on people's individual lives and on society as a whole. Far from being different influences, advertising, consumption, materialism, and the capitalistic economic system affect personal, social, and ecological well-being as well as childhood development. The book makes a strong case that despite psychology's past reticence to investigate issues related to consumerism, such topics are crucial to understanding human life in the contemporary age.
