Drawing on disciplines such as economics, sociology and psychology, Introduction to Marketing encourages readers to critically analyse marketing frameworks, and discuss alternative options. Consideration is given to marketing problems, and students are invited to debate issues surrounding these, such as potential causes and effects, rather than be presented with prescriptive solutions. A chapter on responsible marketing has been added for the new edition, addressing topics such as ethics, corporate responsibility and sustainability, and assessing the impact of these topics on the field of marketing. Content on services marketing has now been integrated throughout the book, reflecting the changing nature of services and acknowledging the move towards service based industries. The new edition maintains a four part structure, beginning with the fundamentals of the marketing environment and outlining what marketing really is. Part two considers customers and how they are central to marketing activities, and part three looks at the marketing mix.The text concludes by bringing the key themes together with discussion of marketing management of marketing and marketing in an international context.

Key issues surrounding the internet and social responsibility are integrated throughout the text, ensuring students understand the importance and relevance of outside influences on a company's marketing decisions and actions.
