Featuring contributions from some of the leading theorists of consumption from across a range of disciplines, this collection includes chapters on: men's consumption and men's magazines the changing profile of women as consumers the representation of consumption on popular TV shows consuming retro chic the symbolic and emotional role of alcohol consumption.

Social theory in the real world by Steven Miles( Book )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 283 libraries worldwide
"Social Theory in the Real World demonstrates that social theory need not be remote and obscure, but if used in imaginative ways, it can be indispensable in challenging our common sense perceptions and understandings. Many sociologists currently argue that the 'real' world has disappeared. This insists that there is a real world and we need to look for it in the interactions between individuals in concrete social contexts. The argument is developed by indentifying the key themes of contemporary theorists of social change, the book highlights the potential of imaginative theorizing and argues that the benefits of social theory do not lie in rote-learning exercises, but in critically and refexively evaluating such theories and how they relate to 'real' life."--Jacket

Communities of youth by Steven Miles( Book )
9 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
"This title was first published in 2002.Communities of Youth critically evaluates what it means to be a young person at the beginning of the twenty-first century and the problems, opportunities and dilemmas that emerge from the experience. The book is concerned with putting key conceptual debates to do with youth in a comparative cutting-edge empirical context. In particular, it endeavours to transcend what its contributors feel is one of the most damaging trends of recent work on the question of youth, namely: the division between young people's transitions and youth culture. Building upon the notion of lifestyle as a means of bridging this gap, the book provides something original and timely: a way of linking young people's broader structural concerns with the cultural and community contexts within which they conduct their everyday lives. The data discussed in the book emanates from a comparative European Union project conducted in Great Britain, Germany and Portugal. The three training programmes examined are based on the performing arts, but the authors argue that the skills young people glean from these courses are more to do with generic skills such as the ability to work effectively in groups, mutual responsibility, discipline and above all, confidence, than the technical proficiencies of performance. These courses become an important part of the young people's lives and as such, provide a space within which they become themselves?. In this sense, the book highlights the fact that far from being passive recipients of public policy, young people actively engage with the power structures that combine to shape their lives. Communities of Youth therefore considers the diversity of European youth and by tapping into this diversity it develops important recommendations that will inform academic debate, research and youth policy."--Provided by publisher
