It was like ... almost part of the furniture ... because I went to school in the shadow
of it, I lived in the shadow of it, and it was accessible, you could go in and you
were trusted ... . And you used to do the nativity play inside the church itself. (Ivy
Shipton, interview, 17 May 2010) It could be argued that some of these
statements of belonging capture present attitudes and emotions rather than those
held during the age of affluence. The emotional dimensions of placeattachment

The proximity of war-borne affluence to recent economic calamity was critical.
Had the boom followed on the heels of general prosperity, its benefits would
have seemed minor and its dislocations painful. As it was, the newfound
prosperity, by emerging in the wake of a terrible depression, forged a powerful
connection between affluence and militarization, one that "would be impossible
to forget," notes one historian. Some noticed it at the time. "The New Deal fought
an uphill battle in its ...

It is often pointed out that consumption has previously been neglected because it
has fallen under the shadow of production which has been presumed to be a
more fundamental determinant. Initially, academics have extended existing
theories to consumption—as in the notion of forging identity through consumption
rather than through work, for example. This has been followed by theoretical and
conceptual innovation around consumption itself—most notably in the range of ...

Second, social policies premised upon and supporting a division of labor by age
and sex have only reinforced this society since the 1970s. Third, so-called
reforms such as the Equal Opportunity Employment Law in fact "perfectly fit the

continued to experience hunger and food insecurity).35 Food prices, which in
earlier times had dominated manual incomes, fell sharply as a proportion of
income, while supply increased greatly in variety.36 Affluence may be
characterized as a flow of ...

AUTHOR'S INTRODUCTION There is starving in the shadow of plenty. Still.
Poverty abounds in the midst of affluence. And this, despite a massive "war on
poverty" that has marshaled billions of dollars, thousands of experts, and
hundreds of programs into an unprecedented arsenal of social activism. Pitiful
ragmen haunt the garbage-strewn alleyways just off Michigan Avenue in Chicago
. Ruthless teenage gangs, riven with hunger and hopelessness, pillage the
barrios of east LA.
