Two books and two reviews:
The first is by Arlie Hochschild—The Outsourced Self: Intimate Life in Market Times. It is reviewed by Rob Horning, ‘Adventures in the Cash Nexus‘, in The New Inquiry.
The second is by Carl Cederstrom and Peter Fleming—Dead Man Working. It is reviewed by John Brissenden, ‘No Fun: Living Death in Emotional Capitalism‘, in New Left Project.
Can we now say that brands have more emotional energy than people?
