Brand Management “Without question, branding is a complex management area that deserves study from a variety of different perspectives and academic traditions. By providing a multi-disciplinary approach, this textbook provides a welcome and invaluable resource for thoughtful students, scholars, and practitioners who want to fully understand branding and brand management.” Kevin Lane Keller, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth “At last a book that cuts through the clutter about understanding brand and so clearly clar- ifies the brand concept. A book that superbly bridges the academic domain and enables practitioners use it to build brand equity.” Leslie de Chernatony, Birmingham University Business School “We think this is an excellent treatment of our topic. Thorough and complete, yet concise and very readable. We love the design and structure, both with regards to the seven approaches, as well as to the four layers within each approach.” Albert M. Muniz, Jr., DePaul University and Thomas C. O’Guinn, University of Wisconsin For over two decades it has been argued that the brand is an important value creator and should therefore be a top management priority. However, the definition of what a brand is remains elusive. This comprehensive book presents the reader with an exhaustive analysis of the scien- tific and paradigmatic approaches to the nature of brand as it has developed over the last twenty years. Taking a multidisciplinary approach and offering an exhaustive analysis of brand research literature, it delivers a thorough understanding of the managerial implica- tions of these different approaches to the management of the brand. Brand Management: Research, theory and practice fills a gap in the market, providing an understanding of how the nature of brand and the idea of the consumer differ in these approaches, and offers in-depth insight into the opening question of almost every brand management course: ‘What is a brand?’ Tilde Heding and Charlotte F.
