9780230102705: Political Virtue and Shopping: Individuals, Consumerism, and Collective Action

Political consumerism is turning the market into a site for politics and ethics. It is consumer choice of producers and products on the basis of attitudes and values of personal and family well-being as well as ethical or political assessment of business and government practice. In the face of economic globalization and a regulatory vacuum, consumers increasingly take responsibility in their own hands, making the market an important venue for political action through their decisions of what to purchase. This book opens the readers' eyes to a new way of viewing everyday consumer choices and the role of the market in our lives, illuminating the broader theoretical and historical context of concerns about sweatshops, responsible coffee, and ethical and free trade. Contemporary forms of political consumerism - boycotts, labelling schemes, stewardship certification, socially responsible investing, etc. - are described and evaluated. Individual actions are shown to be important in the complexity of globalization.

From the Inside Flap:

"This is a theoretically-sophisticated and empirically-rich examination of the increasingly important phenomenon of political consumerism. . . Scholars, politicians, and activists who seek to make sense of the meaning of political consumerism now have an excellent resource. "Political Virtue and Shopping" will take a prominent place on the bookshelf of 'required readings' in the area of consumer politics."--Lawrence Glickman, University of South Carolina
"This book presents the first comprehensive account of the use of purchasing decisions to advance political and social objectives. Micheletti explores both the fascinating history of political consumerism in the United States and Sweden as well as its increasing use as a vehicle to promote national and global corporate responsibility. Her analysis is both well-researched and theoretically sophisticated. " Political Virtue and Shopping "represents an important addition to the scholarly literature on citizen activism and the contemporary relationship between politics and markets."--David Vogel, author of "Lobbying the Corporation; Citizen Challenges to Business Authority," professor, Haas School of Business, Department of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
