Advertising as Culture by Chris Wharton

This book is about advertising and culture. Advertising is a significant aspect of modernsocieties and plays an important part in economic activity. It is a highly visible component of everyday life and increasingly of contemporary culture. The book considers culture as a broad category of human endeavour and experience. It takes a multidisciplinary approach drawing on media and cultural studies and the study of history and of art history, sociology, politics and political economy for ideas and explanations that can be applied to advertising and culture. Indeed the book's contributors are drawn from each of these areas of academic enquiry. Their contributions represent strands and tensions in the relationship between different aspects of culture, such as fashion, art, popular music, politics and media, and the world of advertising. The book raises the question of how, to what effect and with what intensity, advertising features - as the Advertising Standards Authority, the UK's advertising regulator, recently put it - as a 'common subject' in our cultural lives. The book deals with advertising and culture primarily within a British context, but in an increasingly globalised world many of its themes and issues are relevant to societies where advertising is a growing presence. This book explores the relationship between advertising and culture and this introduction outlines the book's scope, content and themes.
