Abstract or Description

This volume brings together historical studies and ethnography that chart the emergence and contemporary reality of Indian consumer identities. Moving from the beginning of advertising to elites, through the state-led creation of mass markets during the post-independece period, the volume covers genealogy and current social life of commodities and the way they relate to imaginations of modernity and citizenship in contemporary India.
