The politics of shopping what consumers learn about identity, globalization, and social change by Kaela Jubas ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This revised version of Kaela Jubas' award winning dissertation focuses on contemporary shopping practices, analyzing the ways concerned shoppers think about globalization, consumption, and their personal effect on the status quo. By using numerous examples from modern advertising, interviews with self-described "radical" shoppers, and selected quotes from scholars and experts, Jubas delves into questions of social justice, environmental awareness, and consumer identity-all demonstrated by individual choices made at the checkout counter. Employing a variety of qualitative research techniques and complex and counterintuitive cultural theory, Jubas's study will interest those in adult education, cultural studies, consumer research, and qualitative inquiry. --From publisher's description

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The only comprehensive history available of suicide bombing from its origins in Imperial Russia to the current day, The Business of Martyrdom examines the bombers, their societies, and the organizations that train and sponsor them. Writing for a broad audience, Lewis draws on the history and philosophy of technology in order to explain the evolution and diffusion of suicide bombing across time and from region to region. Lewis presents a model for suicide bombing that integrates individual psychology, organizational motivations, and social support. He argues that suicide bombing is a technology that has been invented and re-invented at different times in different areas, but always for the same purpose: resolving a mismatch in military capabilities between antagonists by utilizing the available cultural and human resources."--Book jacket
