Reviews

'This is a really superb and original collection of essays and articles. Under the umbrella of critical consumption studies, the book brings together scholars from a range of disciplines whose rigorous research and conceptual insight opens up new avenues for understanding how families and young people, especially those from disadvantaged social groups are forced to negotiate pathways through "austerity times", without losing attachment to the emotional life of objects and items. This is a volume which will be remarkably useful to academics and students alike across the arts, humanities and social sciences.'

-Angela McRobbie, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK
