Research in Consumer Behaviour presents the latest research, theory and methods in the field of consumer behavior. Consumption is broadly construed to include the processes surrounding the acquisition, use and disposition of consumer goods, services and ideas. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches are represented in empirical papers and conceptual papers include differing philosophical orientations. Occasionally special topical volumes devoted to important emerging ideas of consumer research are published. All papers are peer-reviewed. Contributors, readers, and reviewers come from throughout the English-speaking world and from multiple disciplines. These disciplines include marketing, sociology, anthropology, psychology, communications, and others. Papers are accordingly expected to be free of narrow disciplinary jargon and to draw upon the increasingly broad consumer research literature. While papers are often based on a single culture, a global and cultural orientation is expected. The orientation of the series is to advance understanding of consumption issues from a theoretical and societal perspective rather from a more applied managerial perspective. Studies of both macro and micro consumption issues are encouraged as well as issues of significance in both more and less affluent parts of the world. This volume reflects a number of current trends in consumer research. It is interdisciplinary in focus and in the backgrounds of the contributors. The book is cross-cultural by the same criteria, focusing on basic issues such as the nature of consumer desire, development of consumer culture, consumer behavior over the life course, collecting behavior, and effects of consumption on the environment. Recent trends in consumer research methodology (visual elicitation) and focus (sports, art, popular culture) are all reflected.
