*Empire of Things*

The author is Frank Trentmann and the very apt subtitle is How We Became a World of Consumers, from the Fifteenth Century to the Twenty-First.  I have only browsed this, but it appears both readable and well informed.  It is a “big book” with 690 pp. of core text, bringing together many ideas from history and the social sciences yet in narrative form.
