Bringing together the latest thinking on both celebrity brands and celebrity culture from academics specialising in the field of marketing, this book explores a range of insightful contexts in order to add vigour and vitality to our understanding of the connections between celebrities, markets and culture. It unpacks the identity theoretics which have their origins in the turn to celebrity culture and the spectacle and glamour of mass-media practices. In doing so, the contributors hint at new forms of individuation where the line between the virtual and the actual is blurred, and where images of celebrities construct and deconstruct themselves. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Marketing Management.

Marketing Graffiti

Rejecting the managerially-driven structures normally imposed on the subject, Saren explains marketing from the perspective of the pivotal figure in the process: the consumer. He addresses readers as active consumers and producers of marketing, and therefore already well-equipped to appreciate the rationale and practice behind the process. Critically examining the wide range of products, businesses, technologies, information, services, ads, packaging and branding, Saren utilizes everyday images and phenomena to draw out the conceptual foundations of marketing in its social and cultural context that we all experience. By taking this alternative approach - linking the abstract concepts to the everyday world the reader already knows -Marketing Graffiti explains marketing as consumers experience it, as active participants in it reflecting the variety in the bricollage subject that is marketing.

SHE IS A FASHION ICON WITH A LUST FOR FAME. HE IS POSSIBLY THE MOST FAMOUS ATHLETE ON THE PLANET. Together they are one of the most loved -- and hated -- pairs on Earth. This sensational, highly addictive biography delves beneath the Beckhams' glossy, glamorous facade to expose the real Posh and Becks behind the headlines and the hype. Celebrity biographer Andrew Morton, hailed for his insightful, in-depth coverage of luminaries such as Princess Diana and Madonna, explores in detail how David and Victoria Beckham followed their passions -- football and fame -- to become two of the most recognizable people in the world. From their individual childhood stories of relentlessly pursuing their dreams to achieving fame together on an international level, Posh and Becks have earned their unofficial titles as the "King and Queen of Popular Culture," and they never disappoint their fans -- or the tabloids -- when it comes to making news. Their whirlwind courtship, "royal" wedding, alleged affairs, and family struggles have been lived out under the glare of flashbulbs, which they seem to simultaneously court and shun as they attempt to balance their personal lives with their public personas. With up-to-date coverage and commentary on all things Beckham, including David's disappointing stint at Real Madrid and the family's relocation to Los Angeles, Posh & Becks lays bare the truth behind the tabloids on this fascinating couple.

The businesses behind Dubai Sports City, the branding of David Beckham, and the presence and popularity of fantasy sports leagues on the internet are unmistakable indicators that the sports and the entertainment industries are quickly becoming one and the same. But, you needn't travel far or be a hard core sports fan to appreciate this fact. Whether you play Madden NFL on the Wii, use Nike+ along with your iPod to monitor your workouts, or channel surf and take note of the number of athlete-driven commercials, evidence of this transformation is ubiquitous in today's sports viewing and consuming experience. In recent years, the rapid convergence of sports and entertainment has been key to the sports business industry's continued growth and financial success. Money Games not only analyzes how industry stakeholders have monetized this convergence, but also provides readers with answers to this core question: how can the sports business continue to profit from the blurring of sports and entertainment? Author David M. Carter considers a wide array of implications for television content, video gaming, athlete branding, the Internet, mobile technology, gambling, sports-anchored real estate development, venue technology, and corporate marketing—in short, those areas where business opportunities exist now that sports and entertainment have become one. Money Games is a must-read for professionals and future leaders of the sports and entertainment industries, and sports fans will also find an intriguing story about the evolution of the games that they cherish and follow.

Just like the character in Moby Dick who gives the company its name, Starbucks has spread to every part of the world, making it one of today's most recognizable brands. In this thoughtful and elegantly written book, John Simmons explores the Starbucks story, providing fascinating insight into the factors that have made Starbucks a world-class brand. Like McDonald's and Coca-Cola, Starbucks has recently suffered at the hands of anti-globalization protesters. That alone is an indication of the reach and size of Starbucks today. Go to Beijing or Moscow, and you will find Starbucks, just like you would find McDonald's. What people there are buying is not just a latte or a Big Mac, but a brief excursion into America and the luxury that is seen to be American. But with the Starbucks story, there is also a deeper level that links with the sense that this brand - through its shops - creates gathering places for local communities. As a result, Starbucks is the quintessential brand of the modern age.

Famous both on and off the pitch, David Beckham has reached iconic status druing a career spanning 16 years and taking in four of the world's biggest clubs. This in-depth biography traces the incredible accomplishments of the kind-hearted and talented star who has taken the world by storm. Born in east London, Beckham began his football career at Tottenham Hotspur but signed schoolboy forms for Manchester United on his 14th birthday. He was part of the team that won the FA Youth Cup in 1992 and, having made his senior debut in 1994, soon established himself as United's right-sided midfielder. Beckham was integral to the club's success during him time at Old Trafford, winning six Premier League medals, two FA Cups and being part of the legendary Treble-winning side of 1999. Beckham has also been a major player for England since making his international debut in 1996. His infamous sending-off against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup looked set to ruin his England career but thanks to his impressive perfomances and his attitude on and off the pitch, he won supporters round and became England captain in 2000. Similarly, Manchester United supporters were rocked by Beckham's move to Real Madrid in 2003, but he is still held in high regard by the club and fans alike. Awarded the OBE in 2003, Beckham is now an iconic figure in English football and has been instrumental in England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup. Although injury sadly put paid to his dream of playing in the 2010 Finals, his status is such that he travelled with the England team to South Africa to act as a mentor. As much a brand as a fooballer, and with a celebrity lifestyle most can only dream of, David Beckham is much more than a footballing legend.
