English Description: Consumption is ubiquitous and there is hardly a time or place on which the world of saleable goods does not sooner or later come to bear. But what exactly is consumption, where did it begin and where does it end? Daily consuming is not reducible to the performance of transactions. In marked contrast, the sale appears to be only an intermediary step of broader processes of consumption, which takes its beginning with the production of needs, wants and expectations and in its course uses, modifies and disposes of goods. Not only are awareness and expectations generated in this process but they also (re-)produce social regulations and all kinds of references. This multidimensionality of consumption is reflected in the enormous diversity of social-scientific studies on consumption. This collection combines various social-scientific approaches along the lines of consumption culture, consumption world and daily consumption which allows for contrasts between the epistemological ideas and logical clarifications from consumption sociology and geography or ethnological perspectives (for examples) to be visible but also the little observed convergences of these approaches. German Description: Konsum ist allgegenwartig. Kaum ein Ort oder ein Zeitpunkt an dem nicht fruher oder spater die Welt der kauflichen Guter tangiert wird. Doch was genau ist Konsum, wo beginnt und wo endet er? Das alltagliche Konsumieren erschopft sich nicht im Vollzug von Kaufakten. Ganz im Gegenteil, der Kauf scheint nur Zwischenetappe eines umfassenden Konsumprozesses zu sein, der mit der Erzeugung von Bedurfnissen, Wunschen und Vorfreuden seinen Anfang nimmt und in dessen Verlauf Guter benutzt, modifiziert und schliesslich entsorgt werden. In diesem Prozess werden nicht nur Aufmerksamkeit und Erwartungen generiert, sondern auch gesellschaftliche Ordnungen und die verschiedensten Ortsbezuge (re-)produziert. Diese Multidimensionalitat des Konsums spiegelt sich in einer enormen Vielgestaltigkeit der sozialwissenschaftlichen Konsumforschung wider. Der vorliegende Sammelband fuhrt verschiedene sozialwissenschaftliche Zugange entlang der Dimensionen Konsumkultur, Konsumwelten und Konsumalltag zusammen. Damit werden nicht nur Kontraste zwischen den Erkenntnisinteressen und Erklarungslogiken von z.B. Konsumsoziologie, Konsumgeographie oder ethnologischen Perspektiven sichtbar, sondern auch bislang wenig beachtete Konvergenzen.

Bringing together leading urban scholars, this book discusses the linkages between the economic, social and psychological factors of the urban environment. It focuses on the growth of private urbanity that has led to a 'spectactularization' of the city, the most extreme component of attention being the fascination which is aroused by attractions and state-managed events. The complex characteristics of this fascination are examined under the dimensions of aesthetics, emotions, lived experiences and power structures and governance. The interdisciplinary nature of this collection has wide international appeal and will be of interest to academics of social and cultural geography and cultural and media studies.
