This core textbook addresses structural change in the advertising industry, its legal and political environment, and the ways in which people engage with advertising. Providing an assessment of the contemporary and emergent advertising techniques that drive the world’s largest media companies, this second edition charts the scope of recent change at both analytical and creative levels. Accounting for a re-shaped advertising industry, this key text introduces the reader both to the practical make-up of digital advertising, and the theory needed to understand its history and future direction.

Succinct and accessible, this is an ideal text for undergraduate courses in advertising, media studies, communications and marketing. This timely and engaging book is also an essential resource for academics and anyone interested in advertising and what funds modern media.
