Markets In Fashion

RRP $317.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Interest in contemporary cultural industries has grown in the past decade, as they take on a greater significance in our increasingly consumer-led society. Focusing on the world of fashion photography, this book presents an interdisciplinary approach in which this and other aesthetic markets, such as advertising, modelling, art, music and more, can be viewed.

The main thrust of this groundbreaking book, is in developing a theory for these cultural markets, characterized by insecurity, and where status and aesthetic diversity generate order and price differentiation. In these industries, services and products are offered that are a mix of the aesthetic and the economic, and for fashion photographers such as those studied here, it is necessary to carefully position themselves in the market by developing unique photographic styles and separating themselves from competitors.


Yet the markets in which these industries operate differ from the type of exchange markets depicted by neoclassical economists, and therefore cannot be considered using such modes of analysis. Instead Aspers conducts his study using empirical phenomenology, an original approach presented here for the first time, which can be easily used in other empirical studies. He draws on original empirical material; participant observation and interviews generated in New York and Stockholm; which bring a depth of analysis and a relevance to this book which academics, researchers and those with a vested interest in such industries will value.


Written by one of the world's brightest young economic sociologists, this fascinating book (previously published in Sweden and enthusiastically received) is endorsed by recognized industry authorities. A noteworthy book, it provides a foothold in the burgeoning sub discipline of economic sociology, and a significant analysis of the economics of the fashion photography industry.

In the tradition of the old Ace Doubles (flip one book over to read the second title), here's the twenty-eighth Wildside Double: THE WAR WITH THE BELATRIN: Science Fiction Stories, by Don Webb. The alien Belatrin are the "Other." They look like us, they organize their society like ours, yet even the slightest contact with them leads humans to madness. Here are seven encounters from a war in space that leads to a species-changing moment of synthesis and transformation, including the classic, award-winning novella, "The Five Biographies of General Gerrhan." First-rate space opera in the grand style! A VELVET OF VAMPYRES: Tales of Horror, by Don Webb. It's a "murder" of crows and a "parliament" of owls. For bats, the genus is "velvet," and hence also for vampires. We like the older spelling, the one John Polidori gave us when he alerted the world to their presence. They're here--dominating our dreams, our fears, our media. But what if they aren't boy-band-pretty with diamond sparkly skin? What if they're more dangerous because they're Desire herself? What if they're behind deep erotic urges AND the desire to write a poem? What if they live in the need to tear open a bright shiny Christams present AND the desire to drink hot red blood burning bright in the night? Seven great tales of the living undead by a Master of the Order of the Vampyre of the Temple of Set. Caveat lector!
