Item description for Consuming Hong Kong (Hong Kong Culture and Society) by Gordon Mathews...
Consumption forms an essential part of Hong Kong people's lives today, but until now little serious attention has been paid to it. This book fills this gap, in a fascinating way. Consuming Hong Kong shows how the detailed ethnographic study of consumption in Hong Kong can lead to a deeper understanding of Hong Kong life as a whole, as well as of consumption in the world at large.
