The study of collection is a growth point in cultural studies, conceived a a study of practice, of the ways in which people make sense of the world by bringing elements together. This volume focuses on 19th and earlier 20th-century collectors, roughly spanning 1835 to 1960. The essence of the imperial theme is described as a belief in the real, a confidence in the positivist, essential nature of things. The belief in the sovereignty of reason and its potential to command nature fuelled both the scientific expertise of the time and the "can-do" technology upon with both global communication and industrial development depended. Interwined with this was the steady shift from the production of material as a way of life to that of consumption. This shift created the lavishly over-furnished homes of middle-class Britain and the elaborate lifestyle based upon many sets of thing.s.

This volume focuses on the nature and study of collectors and collecting in the closing decades of the 20th century, from 1960 onwards. Concentrating on contemporary or "new" collecting", this volume explores new trends in collecting, which digress from the "old collecting" conventions of antiques and fine art, to the discovery of value in objects such as milk bottles and telephone cards. The study of a number of "contemporary voices" shows that trends in these generations differ from those of previous ones. It is not so much the exotic or "other" which attracts the modern collecting sensibility, but rather the material culture which symbolises our everyday life.
