Advertising, materialism and consumption are central aspects of contemporary Western culture.

Consumer Culture, Identity, and Well-Being documents the negative psychological impact consumer culture can have on how individuals view themselves and on their emotional welfare. It looks at the social psychological dimensions of having, buying and wanting material goods, as well as the pursuit of media-hyped appearance ideals. In particular, it focuses on: The purchasing of material goods as a means of expressing and seeking identity, and the negative consequences of this Psychological buying motivations in conventional buying environments and on the Internet The unrealistic socio-cultural beauty ideals embodied by idealized models.
