Adcult USA: The Triumph of Advertising in American Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A spirited exploration of the culture created when advertising becomes not just a central institution, but "the" central institution.

Review:

"Twitchell eloquently excoriates the standard dull rants about the evils of commercialism. In true postmodern fashion, he argues that there can be no meaningful division between high art and advertising. . . . Not a single page is without a cleverly turned sentence, thought-provoking remark, or outrageous conclusion." Wired

Review:

"What are we to make of this mixture of high and not-so-high culture? ?If we find the process invigorating, you call it bricolage,´ writes Twitchell. ?If not, you call it tasteless.´" Adweek
