Never done : a history of American housework by Susan Strasser( Book )

12 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and held by 1,737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first complete history of the American housewife, Never Done is a lively and authoritative survey of American household technology and ideas about housework. Richly illustrated and using a wide variety of sources ... Susan Strasser demonstrates how post-Civil War industrialization transformed the work of the household, lightening some tasks and eliminating the need for others, while introducing commercial products, such as textiles, that supplanted both the inadequate makeshifts and the fine crafts of home industry. These technological changes inexorably affected women's daily lives, transforming their working relationships with each other and with the people they served."--Front flap of dust jacket
Satisfaction guaranteed : the making of the American mass market by Susan Strasser( Book )

32 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 1,376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Waste and want : a social history of trash by Susan Strasser( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 1,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Waste and Want recaptures a hidden part of our social history, vividly illustrating that what counts as trash depends on who's counting, and that what we throw away defines us as much as what we keep."--Jacket
Commodifying everything : relationships of the market by Susan Strasser( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Commodification" refers most explicitly to the activities of turning things into commodities and of commercialising that which is not commercial in essence. The mass marketing of pets, the rise of the coffin industry, the conversion of preacher into salesmen, and the globalization of Taleggio cheese are some of the exciting but surprising topics in this volume that show how friendship, death, spirituality, and artisanship all have a price after being commodified. This unique collection of essays is a fascinating take on creating consumer products and consumer identities when what's for sale goes well beyond the thing itself. It will be a course-in-a-box for instructors who want to teach their students about commodification
Sound in the age of mechanical reproduction by David Suisman( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in 'Sound in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction' uncover the varying dimensions of sound in 20th-century history. Together they connect a host of disparate concerns, from issues of gender and technology to contests over intellectual property and government regulation
Social justice feminists in the United States and Germany : a dialogue in documents, 1885-1933( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women reformers in the United States and Germany maintained a brisk dialogue between 1885 and 1933. Drawing on one another's expertise, they sought to alleviate a wide array of social injustices generated by industrial capitalism, such as child labor and the exploitation of women in the workplace. This book presents and interprets documents from that exchange, most previously unknown to historians, which show how these interactions reflected the political cultures of the two nations. On both sides of the Atlantic, women reformers pursued social justice strategies. The documents discussed here reveal the influence of German factory legislation on debates in the United States, point out the differing contexts of the suffrage movement, compare pacifist and antipacifist reactions of women to World War I, and trace shifts in the feminist movements of both countries after the war. Social Justice Feminists in the United States and Germany provides insight into the efforts of American and German women over half a century of profound social change. Through their dialogue, these women explicate their larger political cultures and the place they occupied in them
Getting and spending : European and American consumer societies in the twentieth century( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet their commonalities suggest recent directions in the scholarship, raising such themes as consumption and democracy; the development of a global economy; the role of the state; the centrality of consumption to Cold War politics; the importance of the Second World War as a historical divide; the language of consumption; the contexts of locality, race, ethnicity, gender, and class; and the environmental consequences of twentieth-century consumer society. Implicitly, and sometimes explicitly, they explore the role of the historian as social, political, and moral critic
Affluenza( Visual )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fascinating look at one of the greatest social maladies of our time: overconsumption and materialism. Hosted by National Public Radio's Scott Simon, the program explores both the comical and sobering aspects of our consumerism and its enormous impact on families, communities and the environment. With the help of historians and archival film, Affluenza reveals the forces that have dramatically transformed us from a nation that prizes thriftiness - with strong beliefs in 'plain living and high thinking' - into the ultimate consumer society"--Container

Race & sex: Eine Geschichte der Neuzeit 49 Schlüsseltexte aus vier Jahrhunderten neu gelesen( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte der Neuzeit ist eine Geschichte des Rassismus. Dies zeigt sich von den ersten Entdeckungsreisen über fünf Jahrhunderte des Kolonialismus bis in unsere globalisierte Gegenwart; von Jahrhunderten der Sklaverei über Systeme der Apartheid bis hin zu globalen Arbeitsordnungen; von den ersten Eroberungskriegen bis zu den Genoziden der Moderne: Alle diese historischen Bewegungen korrespondieren mit Grenzziehungen, mit Einteilungen von Menschen in Gruppen und Kategorien. Ihre Wirkmächtigkeit erhalten Rassismen und Rassenkonzepte insbesondere auch durch ihre enge Bindung an den Sex: An Vorstellungen spezifischer sexueller Wesenhaftigkeiten verschiedener Menschen und ihrer sexuellen Praktiken, an das vielfältige Sprechen über den Sex in der Moderne sowie an Konzepte der Vererbung besagter Wesenhaftigkeiten. 'Rasse' konnte in der Geschichte der Neuzeit erst durch ihre Bindung an Sex und Sex erst durch seine Bindung an 'Rasse' eine solche Wirkmacht entfalten. Westliche, neuzeitliche Gesellschaften sind getrieben von der Obsession zu vergleichen und zu unterscheiden, zu differenzieren und zu hierarchisieren. Ein Denken, das die grenzziehende Wucht von "race&sex" in der Geschichte ebenso wie die endlosen Grenzüberschreitungen und Verschiebungen in den Blick nimmt, trägt dazu bei, Grenzen jeglicher Art ihrer Evidenz zu berauben und deren Historizität aufzuzeigen. Dieses Denken wird so selbst eine Praxis der Grenzüberschreitung und -auflösung. Zu diesem Zweck wurden für dieses Buch 50 internationale Expertinnen und Experten aus den Geschichts-, Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften eingeladen, jeweils einen historischen Schlüsseltext zu "race&sex" einer Re-Lektüre zu unterziehen. Diese Texte reichen von Erzählungen über Begegnungen mit amerikanischen Indigenen aus dem 17. Jahrhundert über deutsche Kolonialzeitschriften des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts bis zu Texten der jüngsten Vergangenheit und Gegenwart. Sie werden vor dem Hintergrund der gegenwärtigen geschichts-, kultur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Debatten in kurzen, pointierten, kritischen Essays daraufhin befragt, wie sie sich in die Geschichte von "race&sex" eingeschrieben haben und wie ihre Bedeutung heute zu verstehen ist
