Expressing America

George Ritzer

From the author and publisher who brought you The McDonaldization of Society, here is another fabulous way to teach students the power of sociological insight when applied to a fundamental icon of 21 st- century society.

“In this crisply written book, Ritzer once again brings sociology and sociological theory to bear on a pervasive aspect of modern life, this time the credit card,” -Ted Wagenaar, Department of Sociology, Miami University

“Ritzer provides a long overdue sociological look at a major American icon and social institution-the credit card. His book gives needed balance to the credit card industry’s version of reality.”
Barbara Gutek, Department of Management and Policy, University of Arizona

“Building on Simmel’s critique of money, Ritzer uses the credit card as the focus for a wide-ranging analysis of modern consumerist society. The book offers both sociological insights and important life lessons, a welcome combination,” – John P. Walsh, Department of Sociology, University of Illinois at Chicago

“Credit card companies flood college campuses with flyers enticing new customers from among the student body. George Ritzer’s Expressing America introduces the sociology of the credit card for students-and explains how this market of potential customers is also the market of future debtors. Analyzing credit card abuse, Ritzer shows how consumers and credit card companies participate in the great consumer debt engine.” -Teresa A. Sullivan, Professor of Sociology and Law, The University of Texas at Austin, and coauthor of As We Forgive Our Debtors: Bankruptcy and Consumer Credit in America

“Buy this-but only use cash!” -Cynthia Woolever, Department of Sociology, Midway College
