The Mass Marketing Of Politics from the Author: Bruce I. Newman. The Mass Marketing of Politics demonstrates how The United States' contemporary political system is driven by marketing, not ideology, with an emphasis on image over substance, personality over issues, and thirty second sound bites over meaningful dialogue. This book details how tactics are being used to determine public opinion, win votes and shape public policy in the White House and Congress. The book points out the pitfalls of relying too heavily on marketing as a campaign and governance tool, and offers alternatives. The Mass Marketing of Politics is provocative and essential reading for anyone interested in North American politics, marketing, political communication, and media studies.

Handbook Of Political Marketing from the Author: Bruce I. Newman. "It has been almost 40 years since John F. Kennedy campaigned for the presidency and introduced a revolutionary approach to campaigning that involved the latest, sophisticated marketing and communication strategies. If Kennedy were alive today and approaching his eightieth birthday, he would no doubt be amazed and intrigued to witness the way in which modern political campaigning has changed since he first redefined the process in 1960. Indeed, the advances and changes in political campaigning and marketing over the past 40 years parallel the explosive innovations that have been made in so many other fields with ties to technology, such as communication, science, and medicine. Today, political campaigns at all levels, from national races to state and local contests, depend on increasingly sophisticated marketing techniques." --Peter D. Hart, President, Peter D. Hart Research Assoc. This unique handbook brings together in one comprehensive volume the leading-edge thinking of some of the foremost political consultants, marketing experts, and political scientists in the world. Scholars and political professionals from nine different countries have contributed original chapters that provide a state-of-the-art review of the role of marketing "good and bad" in political campaigns. The handbook's 40 chapters are organized in six sections that provide an exhaustive review of political marketing: Conceptual and historical origins of political marketing Management of political campaigns Analysis of the political marketplace Development of political strategies Execution of political campaigns Political marketing and democracy Each section includes a rich blend of academic and practitioner authors, often collaborating on chapters, resulting in a rich blend of theory and practice.

Political Marketing from the Author: Kostas Gouliamos. A guiding principle in creating Political Marketing has been to examine the ways in which culture, politics, and society interrelate in the field of political marketing. In the course of the book, the editors and contributors consider ‘culture’ as a distinctive concept with transformative capacities that need further and deeper development in the engineering of the political marketing process. This may be introduced and, consequently, lead to broad formulation of a ‘campaign culture’. Indeed, understanding and adapting a broader ‘campaign culture’, political marketing models may be seen as sets of pathways of key resources resulting viability in human assets, forms of influence, class stratification, alternative flows of information or networking and intercultural knowledge – sharing activity. This book consists of 18 chapters which deal with aspects of political marketing and ‘campaign culture.’ Theoretical chapters are found first, followed by two chapters that deal with theoretical issues which became a subject of research. Next presented are the articles that study aspects of electoral behavior, followed by the papers that analyze aspects of nationalism & national identity. Finally, the book concludes with three case studies on various issues in political marketing.

Political Marketing In Canada from the Author: Alex Marland. Political parties worldwide are using marketing tools such as targeting and segmentation to win elections. Are these strategies making politicians and governments more responsive to voters' needs, or do they pose a threat to democracy? Through case studies that range from the resurrection of the Conservative Party to Tim Hortons as a political brand, this volume shows that the consequences of political marketing in Canada have been profound. Citizens are now viewed as consumers, and platforms and promises have been repackaged as products. Whether this trend is positive or negative depends on how politicians and governments carry out political marketing � and its promises � in practice.

The Political Marketing Revolution from the Author: Jennifer Lees-Marshment. This book shows how British politics is being transformed from a leadership-run system to one dictated by public needs and demands. No longer confined to party politics, organizations including the monarchy, the BBC, universities, local councils, charities and the Scottish Parliament are adopting the tools of market intelligence to understand their market needs and demands.The political marketing revolution raises many questions, such as whether the student or patient really does know best and can decide his own education and health care. The book calls for a debate about the movement of the British political system towards a market-orientation and a re-negotiation of the relationship between leaders and the market. While recognizing the need for political leaders to listen, this debate places some responsibilities on the political consumer, looking to create a new relationship that might work more effectively for both sides.

Political Marketing And British Political Parties from the Author: Jennifer Lees-Marshment. Political parties today focus on the needs and wants of voters in the same way that businesses seek to serve consumers. Demonstrating how British political parties use sophisticated political marketing techniques to gain electoral success, Jennifer Lees-Marshment looks at how they conduct focus groups and opinion polls, then change their behavior and political stances in order to reflect their findings. She analyzes how parties in Britain now attempt to offer a complete product--including their leader, membership rights, and policies--to appeal to a majority of voters, rather than adhering to a political ideology and firm belief system.
