Summary
"Shopping is much more than the simple purchase of goods. As buying has become an essential part of life, shopping is irrevocably tied to our cultural identity, and we are a culture obsessed and beguiled by the desire for consumer goods. In Spree, journalist, culture columnist, and shopping addict Pamela Klaffke reveals the ritual that is now daily routine. Her book is an entertaining and provocative study of shopping's rich and enduring history, from Parisian arcades to American shopping malls, from the inventions of cash registers and shopping carts to the varied shopping customs around the world, from game shows to Internet shopping and eBay.
