Consumer Behaviour in Action introduces marketing students to the fundamental concepts of consumer behaviour in a contemporary context. The text provides a distinctly balanced approach as it balances theory with practical applications and research methods for understanding consumers. Practicalexamples and case studies provide global, regional and local industry examples. Research and insights from fields such as psychology, sociology and complex systems are included. Extended cases studies covering topics such as Nike, Cricket Australia, Target, and McDonalds in overseas markets, drawtogether each part of the book to bring together the themes discussed and encourage students to encourage a deeper understanding of the material. The accompanying enriched oBook and supplementary digital resources provides superior ready-to-use support for both students and lecturers.
