520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc Over the past few generations, expectations of comfort, cleanliness and convenience have altered radically, but these dramatic changes have largely gone unnoticed. This intriguing book brings together the sociology of consumption and technology to in vestigate the evolution of these changes, as well the social meaning of the practices themselves. Homes, offices, domestic appliances and clothes play a crucial role in our lives, but not many of us question exactly how and why we perform so many dai ly rituals associated with them. Showers, heating, air-conditioning and clothes washing are simply.
