Beverly Lemire explores the rise of key commodities across the globe and charts how cosmopolitan consumption emerged as the most distinctive feature of material life after 1500 as people and things became ever more entangled. She shows how wider populations gained access to more new goods than ever before and, through industrious labour and smuggling, acquired goods that heightened comfort, redefined leisure and widened access to fashion. Consumption systems shaped by race and occupation also emerged. Lemire reveals how material cosmopolitanism flourished not simply in great port cities like Lima, Istanbul or Canton, but increasingly in rural settlements and coastal enclaves. The book uncovers the social, economic and cultural forces shaping consumer behaviour, as well as the ways in which consumer goods shaped and defined empires and communities.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Early globalization, rising cosmopolitanism and a new world of goods -- Fabric and furs: a new framework of global consumption -- Dressing world peoples: regulation and cosmopolitan desire -- Smuggling, wrecking and scavenging: or, the informal pathways to consumption -- Tobacco and the politics of consumption -- Stitching the global: contact, connection and translation in needlework arts through the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries -- Conclusion: realizing cosmopolitan material culture.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4657375543<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"History<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4657375543#Series\/new_approaches_to_economic_and_social_history<\/a>> ; # New approaches to economic and social history.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4657375543#CreativeWork\/global_trade_and_the_transformation_of_consumer_cultures<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Global Trade and the Transformation of Consumer Cultures : The Material World Remade, c.1500-1820<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1020031727<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1020031727#PublicationEvent\/cambridge_cambridge_university_press_2018<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4657375543#Agent\/cambridge_university_press<\/a>> ; # Cambridge University Press<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/ezproxy.soas.ac.uk\/login?url=https:\/\/doi.org\/10.1017\/9780511978814<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=5211701<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780511978814<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1020031727<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
