    The increasingly conspicuous problems of contemporary consumerism (particularly social exploitation and environmental destruction) combined with the ever expanding niche markets of neoliberal consumer capitalism have led, in recent years, to a skein of alternative consumer practices. Ethical consumption, fair trade, consumer protests, brand backlashes, green goods, boycotts and downshifting: these are all now familiar consumer activities and in some cases, are almost mainstream. This book suggests we can understand this phenomenon as an expanding field of radical consumption : for this is a world in which we are increasingly encouraged to shop for change. By examining their practices, precedents and politics, this book asks just how radical are these forms of radical consumption? It argues that we need a more expansive vocabulary and to open up approaches of enquiry in order to understand the area s many contradictions, strengths and weaknesses Consumption" therefore draws on a number of contemporary theories, terms and debates in media and cultural studies, including cosmopolitanism, reflexivity, cultural economies and ethics.
