In Consuming Cultures, Jeremy Seabrook shows how the global market has spread consumerism instead of prosperity, a multiplication of demands rather than satisfaction of needs; an unquiet dependency in place of security, and a relentless competitiveness instead of peace. But as local cultures and languages are swept away by the monoculture of the market, Seabrook finds that resistance is breaking out among many people who are rediscovering the importance of the local and the value of community.
