Narrator: Karen White

In this signal work of history, Bancroft Prize winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist Lizabeth Cohen shows how the pursuit of prosperity after World War II fueled our pervasive consumer mentality and transformed American life. Trumpeted as a means to promote the general welfare, mass consumption quickly outgrew its economic objectives and became synonymous with patriotism, social equality, and the American Dream.
Retail Worker Politics, Race and Consumption in South Africa: Shelved in the Service Economy (Repost)

Retail Worker Politics, Race and Consumption in South Africa: Shelved in the Service Economy by Bridget Kenny
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 289 Pages | ISBN : 3319695509 | 7.17 MB

This book argues that we need to focus attention on the ways that workers themselves have invested subjectively in what it means to be a worker. By doing so, we gain an explanation that moves us beyond the economic decisions made by actors, the institutional constraints faced by trade unions, or the power of the state to interpellate subjects. These more common explanations make workers and their politics visible only as a symptom of external conditions, a response to deregulated markets or a product of state recognition.

Wood Pellet as a Renewable Source of Energy: From Production to Consumption by Mohammad Ali Abdoli
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 197 Pages | ISBN : 331974481X | 19.37 MB

This book takes the reader on a journey from the moment that raw wood material enters the factory to the final pellet consumption. It starts by reviewing biomass application and its role for the future development of renewable energies, discussing different biomass conversion methods as alternatives to direct utilization. The second chapter then comprehensively examines densification processes, with a focus on the pelleting process. Chapter three further elaborates on the pelleting process, including an overview of the pellet structure and properties, and the history of this process. The subsequent chapters provide a detailed account of the production process from raw material delivery to final distribution, addressing the chemical and physical quality, and presenting measurement methods and standards. In the final chapters, the authors describe in detail the pellet combustion process and emissions.

Tatler's Irony: Conspicuous Consumption, Inconspicuous Power and Social Change

Tatler's Irony: Conspicuous Consumption, Inconspicuous Power and Social Change By Sallie McNamara
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 149 Pages | ISBN : 3319769138 | 2.95 MB

This book discusses Tatler, a monthly glossy magazine aimed at the wealthiest groups in British society, to consider how it addresses social change. The volume addresses specifically the period from 1997, the year New Labour was elected under Tony Blair, up to 2010, when the Conservative party and David Cameron came in to power. Sallie McNamara scrutinizes how the magazine negotiates ideas of ‘Britishness’, class, gender and national identity in a changing social, political, economic and cultural climate. Additionally, she explores the magazine’s humorous approach, and looks at how that distinctive address can potentially lead to misinterpretation. The British class system has seen many challenges over the period of the magazine’s history, and this study expertly grapples with exactly how Tatler has maintained its audience in a continually changing social environment.
