The McDonaldization of society

Auteur: George Ritzer
Uitgever: Los Angeles : SAGE, 2012.
Editie/Formaat:   Print book : Engels : 7th editionAlle edities en materiaalsoorten bekijken.
As in previous editions, the book has been updated and it offers new discussions of, among others, In-N-Out- Burger and Pret A Manger as possible antitheses of McDonaldization. The biggest change, however, is that the book has been radically streamlined to offer an even clearer articulation of the now-famous McDonaldization thesis.
