Abstract: Love it or loathe it, if we want to understand our current culture of accumulation we need to go back to where it all began. This book comprehensively examines the attempts to define, understand, influence and protect the consumer in postwar Australia. It spans the 'long boom' when an abundance of consumer goods exploded onto the market.
