Overview

This richly illustrated, incisive text produces the most complete critical introduction to advertising culture. Filling a critical gap in the literature, Advertising in Modern and Postmodern Times examines the forms of consumer subjectivity resulting from of postmodern disruptions in time and space and the significance of advertising for the identity of contemporary consumers. Author Pamela Odih marshals an impressive range of historical examples and rich illustrations to explain the socio-cultural development of advertising throughout history.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
There is much to be praised in the book... This book radicalizes the conventional treatment of the topic by the marketing literature, and for that matter some of the sociology of consumption literature. Ultimately, this book is a valuable addition to the study of time, space and society...the book should appeal to a wide audience within sociology, social psychology, cultural studies, social history and media studies. My hope is that the advertising community,both academic and practical, consumes the text and that it forms part of a disruptive praxis for them
