For introductory courses in Advertising, offered in marketing and journalism departments. Everyone has experienced memorable advertising: the ad or jingle that stays in your mind. But memorable advertising may not sell products or build market share-it may not be effective advertising. In these days of accountability, clients are asking that advertisers create advertising that meets measurable goals. The challenge with teaching advertising by taking theory and applying it to what is going on in advertising agencies is that companies have always been very guarded about goals and measures. Advertising: Principles and Practice has lifted the veil by focusing on EFFIE-award winners: advertising campaigns that have won awards for their effectiveness from the American Marketing Association of New York. These EFFIE-award winners reveal client goals and how these goals were reached. No other book takes theory and shows students how it is applied today to produce effective advertising-advertising that works.

Drinking has always meant much more than satisfying the thirst. Drinking can be a necessity, a comfort, an indulgence or a social activity. Liquid Pleasures is an engrossing study of the social history of drinks in Britain from the late seventeenth century to the present. From the first cup of tea at breakfast to mid-morning coffee, to an eveining beer and a 'night-cap', John Burnett discusses individual drinks and drinking patterns which have varied not least with personal taste but also with age, gender, region and class. He shows how different ages have viewed the same drink as either demon poison or medicine. John Burnett traces the history of what has been drunk in Britain from the 'hot beverage revolution' of the late seventeenth century - connecting drinks and related substances such as sugar to empire - right up to the 'cold drinks revolution' of the late twentieth century, examining the factors which have determined these major changes in our dietary habits.
