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 : This book explores the history of children’s toys and games bearing racial stereotypes, and the role these objects played in the creation and maintenance of structures of racialism and racism in the United States, from approximately 1865 to the 1930s. This time period is one in which the creation of structures of childhood and children’s socialization into race was fostered. Additionally, commodities, like toys, were didactic and disciplinary media in the creation, modification and reproduction of Victorian society. This volume: will shed light on issues of identity, ideology, and hegemony; will appeal to those interested in historical archaeology, critical theory, and constructions of racism and class, as well as material culture scholars, and antiques collectors; will be suitable for upper-level courses in historical archaeology, modern American history, and material culture studies.

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.
