Summary "Experiences have become the hottest commodities the market has to offer. No matter where we turn, we are constantly inundated by advertisements promoting products that promise to provide us with some ephemeral experience that is newer, better, more thrilling, more genuine, more flexible, or more fun than anything we have previously encountered. In turn, consumers themselves are increasingly willing to go to great lengths, invest large sums of money, and take great risks to avoid "the beaten track" and "experience something new."" "Working with an interdisciplinary approach, this book critically analyzes the significance this market for experiences (and interest in them) is having as a generative motor of cultural and socioeconomic change in modern society."--BOOK JACKET
