Description

This text seeks to address a theme which is central to understandings of consumption and consumer cultures at the beginning of the 21st century - the nature of connections between production and consumption. It takes a geographical approach to the analysis of links between producers and consumers, focusing upon the ways in which these ties are increasingly stretched across spaces and between places.show more
