Lifestyles have a history, and lifestyle media is fundamentally implicated in this history. This original volume examines issues of taste, media and lifestyle from the 1900s to 1970s, providing a wealth of empirical evidence and key debate from a variety of international perspectives. Including examples as diverse as "Good Housekeeping" and "Playboy", it explores the continuities and discontinuities between the past and present to provide a better understanding about the representation of lifestyle and its relationship to the self.
