  • Political Economy examines how market forces, corporate ownership, and government policies shape the advertising and media promotion environment.
  • Globalization presents work on advertising and marketing as a global, intercultural, and transnational practice.
  • Audiences as Labor, Consumers, Interpreters, Fans introduces how people construct promotional meaning and are constructed as consumers, markets, and labor by advertising forces.
  • Identities analyzes the ways that advertising constructs images and definitions of groups -- such as gender, race and the child -- through industry labor practices, marketing, as well as through representation in advertising texts.
  • Social Institutions looks at the pervasiveness of advertising strategies in different social domains, including politics, music, housing, and education.
  • Everyday Life highlights how a promotional ethos and advertising initiatives pervade self image, values, and relationships.
  • The Environment interrogates advertising’s relationship to environmental issues, the promotional efforts of corporations to construct green images, and mass consumption’s relationship to material waste.

Review:

"[T]he editors have gathered together an impressive set of contributions from leading and emerging scholars who consider advertising, promotional culture and consumer culture from a range of disciplinary perspectives... [T]aken together the thirty chapters create a rich, if sometimes troubling, tapestry depicting advertising and promotion practices, and exploring how these relate to consumer experiences and wider societal structures and concerns." – Stephanie O’Donohoe, The University of Edinburgh
