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

17 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never Done is the first history of American housework. Beginning with a description of household chores of the nineteenth century--cooking at fireplaces and on cast-iron stoves, laundry done with wash boilers and flatirons, endless water hauling and fire tending--Susan Strasser demonstrates how industrialization transformed the nature of women's work. Lightening some tasks and eliminating the need for others, new commercial processes inexorably altered women's daily lives and relationships--with each other and with the people they served. In this lively and authoritative book, Strasser weaves together the history of material advances and discussions of domestic service, "women's separate sphere" and the impact of advertising, home economics and women's entry into the workforce. Hailed as pathbreaking when originally published, Never Done remains an eye-opening examination of daily life in the American past

18 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 1,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 574 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 )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 538 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

Commodifying everything : relationships of the market by Susan Strasser( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Commodification" refers most explicitly to the activities of turning things into commodities and of commercializing 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 surprising topics in this volume that show how friendship, death, spirituality and artisanship all have a price after being commodified. This collection of essays gives a perspective on creating consumer products and consumer identities when what's for sale goes well beyond the thing itself
