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.

Shopping with the Virgin Mary is a collection of small vignettes, not only about shopping, (even though shopping experiences are sprinkled throughout) but the authors growing relationship, knowledge, and understanding of Mary. Her relationship with the Virgin started off, embarrassingly, in the most benign and superficial of ways. She asked Mary to go shopping with and from that one simple request, came a slow and joyful journey of finding her in daily life. Whether she is approved by one church, local official, law enforcement group, psychiatrist, medium or Boy Scout troop seems to make no difference to Mary. She just keeps showing up whenever and wherever she is needed - to Catholics, Protestants, Pagans, Agnostics, Atheists, Aunt Harriet or Cousin Ed . . . there she is. Poof! The most important is that the holy is available to us everywhere: in large cathedrals, on majestic mountains, and in our own backyards. They are here, not just for the pious or religiously good either, but for each and every one of us . . . if we but ask.

In this eBook you will find all information about Shopping Malls in the USA / United States of America. The mall shopping center is an interesting place. It is of course not just a place to go shopping, but it has become a multi-purpose place. Normally, people used to go shopping in downtown areas of cities and go there for other activities as well, but they now go to the mall. It has become a fixture of modern life, one of those things that we cant imagine doing without. For a relatively modern development, the mall shopping center has been a successful idea that has made fortunes for developers, investors, and retailers. What it has done for the average person is another story, but its importance in everyday life is huge, and the influence of the mall is everywhere. It seems like the primary function of a mall these days is a social space, a place for people of all ages to meet up, eat, talk, and generally hang out together. For young people, its the only place to get together and socialize. For others, the shopping center is a place to walk (mall walking is an established practice for older folks) and meet friends, but they have other social spaces like the church, the community center, and so on. But for the young crowd, its the mall or stay at home.
