Looks at the history of the growth of consumerism, exposing the international nature of its expansion through the last six hundred years, and the challenges it poses to the planet. "What we consume has become a central-- perhaps the central-- feature of modern life. Our economies live or die by spending, we increasingly define ourselves by our possessions, and this ever-richer lifestyle has had an extraordinary impact on our planet. How have we come to live with so much stuff, and how has this changed the course of history? In Empire of Things, Frank Trentmann unfolds the extraordinary story of our modern material world, from Renaissance Italy and late Ming China to today's global economy. While consumption is often portrayed as a recent American export, this monumental and richly detailed account shows that it is in fact a truly international phenomenon with a much longer and more diverse history. Trentmann traces the influence of trade and empire on tastes, as formerly exotic goods like coffee, tobacco, Indian cotton and Chinese porcelain conquered the world, and explores the growing demand for home furnishings, fashionable clothes and convenience that transformed private and public life. The nineteenth and twentieth centuries brought department stores, credit cards and advertising, but also the rise of the ethical shopper, new generational identities and, eventually, the resurgence of the Asian consumer. With an eye to the present and future, Frank Trentmann provides a long view on the global challenges of our relentless pursuit of more-- from waste and debt to stress and inequality. A masterpiece of research and storytelling many years in the making, Empire of Things recounts the epic history of the goods that have seduced, enriched and unsettled our lives over the past six hundred years"--… (lisätietoja)

Unstructured litany of interesting transformations in consumerism. Keeps jumping around geographically and chronologically like a time-travelling jittery bunny with ADHD on speed. ( )
  TeaTimeCoder | Dec 23, 2020 |
This is a monumental work that describes what we value and accumulate as “stuff”from the 15th Century to the 21st Century with statistics, charts and copious footnotes. Trentmann debunks many of the myths surrounding the things we own and answers the question, “How does stuff matter?” Our patterns of acquisition have increased and the things we discard are an ever recurring challenge. This is not an easy read. I was fascinated to see the patterns of acquisition reflected against my own lifeline. In this consumer world of ours Trentmann has made a valuable and in depth contribution. ( )

Full of fascinating little facts and well worth the read. Maybe better in the first and last phases and a little too polemic in the middle, but certainly should be on the list of anyone with an interest in how we live today and how we got here. ( )

First, I didn't actually read the Kindle edition. Anyway, there is a lot of interesting material here but for the love of Pete, as someone who knows a good bit about the topic I can only say this could have been said in half the space. Maybe I knew a bit too much about the topic to appreciate the many, many, many examples used, but I just felt this dragged out far too long. ( )
