In recent years, the political and social role of the consumer has taken centre stage in historical research. Claudius Torp’s new study on Consumption and Politics in the Weimar Republic builds on this trend by shedding new light on the role of ‘Konsumvereine’ (consumer cooperatives) and the changing patterns of consumption in the first German democracy.
