This new resource investigates the current state of selling, whether it is groceries, politicians, information, or motorcars. Unlike any other phenomenon, "retailisation" reflects the complexity and diffusion of information processes and the media in the online market. The authors explore the all-pervasive nature of retail in the physical world, the virtual world, and the peripheral spaces in between.
