Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A revealing look at shopping, consumerism, and mall design in America.

Book News Annotation:

Shopping malls have become a central aspect of American life and thus interrogating malls and mall practices provides us with a key window into contemporary American society and culture. Recognizing this fact, Farrell (history and American studies, St. Olaf College) presents 14 essays exploring a wide variety of topics surrounding the way Americans experience malls, generally maintaining a focus on the practices of larger regional, superregional, and megamalls, as they dominate the imagery of shopping centers. He explores how malls are designed; the esthetic, political, and ethical narratives that are expressed in malls, shopping practices and other mall experiences; and a range of other topics, expressing the view that, while there may be "good among the goods," malls are still an expression of a negative cluster of values that leads to a commercial culture that characterizes Americans as mainly consumers.
