9780230201170: Consumption Matters: A Psychological Perspective

What does it mean to live in a consumer society and how does this impact on our behaviour?
 
In this insightful and engaging introduction to the psychology of consumption, Cathrine Jansson-Boyd discusses the various ways that consumer activities pervade our everyday lives, whether we are buying the latest trends to keep up with our peers or altering our physical looks so that we can fit the media's beauty mould.
 
Highlighting why the spread of consumption through society is so important, the book looks at the impact on both children and the environment as well as at ethical considerations. Consumption Matters is the essential starting point for both students and general readers interested in consumer psychology.

About the Author:

CATHRINE JANSSON-BOYD is Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK. She was the first person in the UK to be awarded both an Undergraduate degree and Ph.D. in Consumer Psychology. Her current research interests include aesthetics in the retail environment and impact of touch upon product evaluation.

Review:

'This is a carefully chosen selection of topics drawn from the sprawling and growing field of consumer research, each of which reflects concerns that the general public have about consumption and its effects...I would recommend this text to undergraduates in both marketing and psychology, and an already well-thumbed copy occupies pride of place on my bookshelf.' - Dr Brian Young, School of Psychology, University of Exeter 'This is a much needed and unique book which takes a social psychology approach to the topic of consumer behaviour. It discusses important psychological and social problems related to consumption such as the influence of consumerism on children, self-perception, well being and the environment. It is a welcome addition for introductory courses on consumer psychology and it should be of great interest to the general public.' - Magdalena Zawisza, Department of Psychology, University of Winchester
