A Theory of Shopping
67,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A Theory of Shopping offers a highly original perspective on one of our most basic everyday activities - shopping. We commonly assume that shopping is primarily concerned with individuals and materialism. But Miller rejects this assumption and follows the surprising route of analysing shopping by means of an analogy with anthropological studies of sacrificial ritual. He argues that the act of purchasing goods is almost always linked to other social relations, and most especially those based on love and care. The ethnographic sections of the book are based on a years study of shopping on a street in North London. This provides the basis for a sensitive description of the issues the shopper confronts when making decisions as to what to buy. Miller develops a theory to account for these observations, arguing that shopping typically consists of three major stages which reflect the three key stages of many rites of sacrifice. In both shopping and sacrifice the ultimate intention is to constitute others as desiring subjects. Finally the book examines certain historical shifts in both subjects and objects of devotion, in particular, ideals of gender and love. This treatment of shopping from the perspective of comparative anthropology represents a highly innovative approach to one of the most familiar tasks of our daily lives. Written in a clear and accessible manner, this book will be of interest to students and academics in anthropology, sociology and cultural studies, as well as anybody who wants to consider more deeply the nature of their own everyday activities.

This important book offers unique insights into crime and its prevention in retailing. It is the first comparative study of crime and nuisance in town centres and shopping centres. The book contributes directly to the current debate about the vitality and viability of high-street shopping. It discusses critically the use and effectiveness of a range of security options, including the role of security guards and the privatization of policing in the retail sector. A detailed examination is made of the burgeoning use of closed circuit television, something which is contrasted with the lack of information about its effectiveness. This timely and major contribution is of interest to retailers, town-centre and shopping-centre managers, the private security industry and police officers, as well as academics and students.

Mailands Monster / Milans Monsters
31,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mailand - Stadt der Mode und des Designs, berühmt für seine Scala und seinen Dom. Mailand - auch eine Stadt, um auf Monster-Safari zu gehen? Dieses Buch will den Blick des Betrachters in Winkel und Ecken lenken, auf Motive, die eher ein Schattendasein im Licht der Attraktionen dieser Stadt führen. Zu unrecht, wie die 120 Farbaufnahmen belegen, die zum erstenmal in gesammelter Form veröffentlicht werden. Wasserspeier, Blattmasken und Fabelwesen, als Steinmetzarbeiten liebevoll bis ins kleinste Detail ausgeführt, befinden sich nicht nur am großartigen Dom selbst, sondern sind auch zahlreich in den noblen Einkaufsstraßen, über den exklusiven Mode- und Juwelierläden zu entdecken. Milan - city of fashion and design, famous for its Scala and its cathedral. Milan - also a city to go monster hunting? This book intends to guide the eyes of the reader to hidden corners and places, to motifs which lead a shadowy existence in the light of the citys attractions. Very wrongly so, as the 120 coloured photos prove which are published for the first time. Gargoyles, foliate masks and mythical creatures, carved out of stone with a love for details, are not to be found on the great cathedral alone, but also in the elegant shopping streets, perching above the exclusive fashion and jewellery shops. Regina E.G. Schymiczek ist Kunsthistorikerin und Autorin. Seit 1999 beschäftigt sie sich intensiv mit der Entwicklung und Deutung von Wasserspeiern. 2003 schrieb sie ihre Dissertation über die Wasserspeier des Kölner Doms, veröffentlichte seitdem mehrere Bücher und Aufsätze zu diesem Thema und hält regelmäßig Vorträge über Wasserspeier. Mehrere Kinderbücher von ihr sind bereits erschienen, ein historischer Roman wird in Kürze veröffentlicht. Regina E.G. Schymiczek is art historian and author.
