From the Author:

This book carefully analyzes the nature of luxury in a systematic manner for the purpose of developing a sound basis formarketing luxury products and understanding luxury markets. The fundamentalpropositions and characteristics of luxury are presented, and the primaryluxury 'drivers' are described. More specific areas of the luxury experienceare then analyzed in more detail.  These include quality and aesthetics, thepurchase situation, the consumption situation, the cultural and social frame,consumer segmentation, geographical differences, product categories, andbranding. It concludes with strategic advice to marketing managers. 
 Driven by the finding that hypothetically allcategories could have a luxury tier, and the conclusion that many luxury brandsare not managed appropriately, the book provides managers with comprehensive toolsetsand strategies to manage luxury in a more competitive, profitable and sustainableway.
