Advertising in Modern and Postmodern Times


How does advertising position itself in consumer culture? In what ways does itcreate feelings ofdesire and wants? 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 subjectivityresulting from of postmodern disruptions in time and space and the significance of advertising for the identityof 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, demonstrating:
A sophisticated and comprehensive discussion of the main relevant theories
How real ads work, together with reproductions of advertising images and copy
How advertising constructs subjects
A highly instructive historical overview of advertising
The relationship between advertising and industrial capitalism

This book is a powerful argument that postmodern disruptions in our experiences of advertising have dramatically transformed identity construction.
