This is the first book to focus on governance and cultures of consumption, expanding the debate and raising new conceptions and policy agendas. It questions the changing place of the consumer as citizen in recent trends in governance, the tensions between competing ideas and practices of consumerism, and the active role of consumers in governance.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Radically pushing forward the debate on consumers and governance, this collection outlines new conceptions and posits new policy agendas. - Journal of Consumer Policy

'This book seems to me full of interesting papers that will challenge academics and postgraduate students interested in public policy and administration. It will, I suspect, be much pored over and the editors and authors are to be congratulated on its production.' - Michael Connolly, Political Studies Review

'...succeeds in revitalizing and enriching the debate on the relationship between consumption and citizenship...an invitation to sociologists to enter the debate and bring their sociological imagination to arrive at a better, more truthful understanding of this very important, complex, ambivalent and paradoxical phenomenon that is governance' - Sociology
