The rise of retro has led many to conclude that it represents the end of marketing, that it is indicative of inertia, ossification and the w aning of creativity. Marketing - the Retro Revolution explains why the opposite is the case, demonstrating that retro-orientation is a harbi nger of change and a revolution in marketing thinking. In his engaging and lively style, Stephen Brown shows that the implications of today' s retro revolution are much more profound than the existing literature suggests. He argues that just as retro- marketing practitioners are l ooking to the past for inspiration, so too students, consultants and a cademics should seek to do likewise. History reveals that new ideas of ten come wrapped in old packaging. Marketing - the Retro Revolution un wraps this retro- package and, in doing so, offers radically new ideas for the future of the field.
