Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I highly recommend the excellent and engaging book Advertising and Society: An Introduction, 2nd Edition edited by Carol J. Pardun, Ph.D., to any academics and undergraduate students in business, advertising, marketing, media, communications, journalism, the social sciences or any other related field where the impact of advertising is felt in society. This book is a challenging guide for reconsidering the student's own viewpoints about advertising, and enhancing their ability to think critically about the issues surrounding this controversial topic.”  (Blog Business World, 24 September 2013)
