A brief history of thrift

First Edition

Alison Hulme

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A timely book, it explores a concept DS thrift - that is part of everyday life for an increasing number of people, and one that is highly apposite in light of the economic recession and the so-called 'Age of Austerity'
  • Garners wide appeal within and beyond academia by exploring the concept of thrift in an accessible way, using thematic chapters to bring key historical moments, players, and ideas to life
  • Provides a unique exploration of a topical concept, by transcending disciplinary boundaries, and drawing upon moral, religious, ethical, political, spiritual and philosophical expressions of thrift
  • Draws upon the author's previous book on low-end commodity chains and specific burgeoning ideas of the place of thrift within them
