Fast Food, Credit Cards And Casinos
Sobre o livro
Demonstrating the irrational consequences of the rational desire to consume and commodify, the author examines how McDonaldization might be resisted, and situates the reader in the cultural spaces in society: shopping malls, casino hotels, Disneyfied parks and Las Vegas. He also shows how processes of consumption relate to globalization theory.
