Summary
"An historical account of modern shopping, Point of Purchase traces the incredible impact of consumer culture on public life from the five-and-dimes and mail-order catalogs of the mid-nineteenth century to today's eBay, Amazon.com, and Zagat guides. Unlike other social critics, Sharon Zukin does not condemn Americans for being obsessed by shopping opportunities. Rather, she explores why shopping has become so central to our lives: our being surrounded by too many stores, our never-ending quest for better values, and shopping's uncanny ability to make us think we are getting "the best.""--Jacket
