Opis: Empire of Things - Frank Trentmann

What we consume has become the defining feature of our lives: our economies live or die by spending, we are treated more as consumers than workers, and even public services are presented to us as products in a supermarket. In this monumental study, acclaimed historian Frank Trentmann unfolds the extraordinary history that has shaped our material world, from late Ming China, Renaissance Italy and the British empire to the present. Astonishingly wide-ranging and richly detailed, Empire of Things explores how we have come to live with so much more, how this changed the course of history, and the global challenges we face as a result. Empire of Things is an extraordinary, Braudelian achievement. It is impossible to imagine that any one person would be able to do this better than Frank Trentmann -- John Brewer, author of 'The Pleasures of the Imagination', winner of the Wolfson History Prize Mad-cap consumption dwarfs population growth and war as the most destructive - and apparently irreversible - source of pressure on the resources of our planet. But, despite tenacious academic efforts, we still do not know why we got into this mess. Empire of Things - comprehensively informed, impeccably scholarly, vividly detailed, delightfully written - is the indispensable starting-point for anyone who wants to understand how in the last half-millennium every effort to restrain consumers failed, while revolutions in consumption kept piling up waste and warnings -- Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, author of 'Millennium' and 'Civilizations' Empire of Things is something to behold; a compelling account of consumerism that revels in its staggering breadth and depth. Frank Trentmann has written a necessary and important book about one of the defining characteristics of our times -- Amanda Foreman, author of 'Georgiana', winner of the Whitbread Prize, and 'A World on Fire' In this magisterial volume, Frank Trentmann takes us through time and across national borders to provide a comprehensive history of how people the world over have come to live with more and more things. Here is the crucial backstory to every consumer exchange -- Lizabeth Cohen, author of 'A Consumers' Republic: The Politics of Mass Consumption in Postwar America'
