Full-colour adaptation written in parallel with the US 4/e, providing a comprehensive, lively, highly contemporary and practical introduction to consumer behaviour, and how consumer behaviour research and concepts can inform and be applied to broader / strategic marketing issues. It is the first and only European-originated text of this kind to give a significant weighting to issues, illustrative examples, data and research concerning European consumer markets and behaviour (55%), while also including material from the US (25%) and other major global markets (20%).
The five-part `wheel' structure of the text moves from the micro to the macro level, progressively expanding its focus and coverage from individual consumers and their internal dynamics (part II), through group and household consumption decisions (part III), to larger social structures/sub-cultures (part IV), and finally mass cultures consumption activities (part V).
