Product description


"He clearly illustrates that luxury transcends categories, even in areas where non-consumption activist movements shun excessive consumption and promote simple living (chapter 20). In fact, there is very little in daily life that does not have the capacity of being exposed to the draw of luxury, from food (chapter 16) and drink (chapters 14 and 15) to domestic help (chapter 19)." (Natalina Zlatevska, Assistant Professor, Bond University Australia)
