One Nation under Goods: Malls and the Seductions of American Shopping
You can download this book for free from the Microsoft Reader site. Sounds interesting but I haven't read any of it yet. It promises "a revealing examination of shopping, consumerism, and mall design in America." Certainly overconsumerism is a major problem on the planet. I read somewhere it takes 24 acres to support 1 American. You can also download a copy of Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut at the same place.
