Citizenship and Consumption provides a timely forum for current thinking on consumption and citizenship, exploring overlaps, interactions and tensions between them. Conventionally, citizenship and consumption have been treated as oppositional or exclusive spheres. Ideas of citizenship have developed in relative isolation from studies of consumption. Recent controversies about 'choice' and 'sustainability' as well as a new wave of consumer activism, by contrast, point to the complex civic dimensions of consumption. Bringing together experts from history, theory, media studies, law, and civil society, the volume retrieves alternative traditions of consumption and citizenship in West and East, past and present, and evaluates the civic prospects of consumption for the future.
