Short description:

This Handbook analyzes cutting-edge consumer psychology research through individual, interpersonal, and societal lenses and considers future directions for the field.

Long description:
Why do consumers make the purchases they do, and which ones make them truly happy? Why are consumers willing to spend huge sums of money to appear high status? This Handbook addresses these key questions and many more. It provides a comprehensive overview of consumer psychology, examining cutting-edge research at the individual, interpersonal, and societal levels. Leading scholars summarize past and current findings, and consider future lines of inquiry to deepen our understanding of the psychology behind consumers' decision making, their interactions with other consumers, and the effects of societal factors on consumption. The Cambridge Handbook of Consumer Psychology will act as a valuable guide for faculty as well as graduate and undergraduate students in psychology, marketing, management, sociology, and anthropology.

'The Cambridge Handbook of Consumer Psychology does a beautiful job of bringing together some of the most important and interesting researchers currently working in the field. It not only affords us the chance to learn about a wonderful range of current research but it also offers an exciting glimpse of possibilities to come.' Dan Ariely, Fuqua School of Business, Duke University, North Carolina
