Description : Investigates the current state of selling, whether this is groceries, politicians, information or motorcars. Unlike any other phenomenon, retailization reflects the complexity and diffusion of information processes and the media in the online market. The authors explore the all-pervasive nature of retail in the physical world, the virtual world and the peripheral spaces in between. Coverage includes: interviews with Asda, MOMA, the Tate Modern, Wal-Mart, Sony, Habitat, Manchester United and Volkswagen, while Bill Mitchell, Dean of Architecture at MIT, architects Jon Jerde, Rem Koolhas and Ben van Berkel, as well as David Peek, psychologist behind the Bluewater Shopping Mall, are all individually interviewed.

Description : In Beastly Possessions, Sarah Amato chronicles the unusual ways in which Victorians of every social class brought animals into their daily lives. Captured, bred, exhibited, collected, and sold, ordinary pets and exotic creatures – as well as their representations – became commodities within Victorian Britain's flourishing consumer culture. As a pet, an animal could be a companion, a living parlour decoration, and proof of a household's social and moral status. In the zoo, it could become a public pet, an object of curiosity, a symbol of empire, or even a consumer mascot. Either kind of animal might be painted, photographed, or stuffed as a taxidermic specimen. Using evidence ranging from pet-keeping manuals and scientific treatises to novels, guidebooks, and ephemera, this fascinating, well-illustrated study opens a window into an underexplored aspect of life in Victorian Britain.
