    a| Annotation b| The book is an edited collection in which world-leading scholars in economics, anthropology, sociology, history, psychology, politics, ecological science, and neuroscience contribute to a deeper understanding of sustainable consumption by drawing together insights from these diverse disciplines. The book was developed from papers presented at a conference held in honour of the distinguished economist Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta. Contributors were asked tosituate their recent research on aspects of sustainable consumption in the broader context of how their disciplines tackle the subject of consumption and how disciplinary perspectives on consumption relate to one another. Contributions cover diverse topics, including: why the conventional economic modelsare inadequate for addressing sustainable consumption; the economics of happiness; the politics of 'nudge'; the neuroscience of consumption; and social science approaches to sustainable consumption. The editors' extended introduction sketches the conventional economic model of consumption and explores how the contributions extend or challenge this understanding.
