Book Description

The Everyday Life Reader brings together thinkers ranging from Freud to Baudrillard with primary sources. It thus provides a complete and comprehensive resource on theories of everyday life.

*Situating the Everyday
*Everyday Life and 'National Culture'
*Ethnography Near and Far
*Reclamation Work
*Everyday Things
