Advertising and Promotion An IntegratedMarketing Communications Perspective 10th Global Edition
We are pleased to present this Global Edition, which has been developed specifically to meet the needs of international advertising students. In this 10th edition, Belch/Belch introduces students to the fast-changing field of advertising and promotion. While advertising is its primary focus, it is more than just an introductory advertising text because there is more to most organizations’ promotional programs than just advertising. The changes happening in the world of advertising are leading marketers and their agencies to approach advertising and promotion from an integrated marketing communications (IMC) perspective, which calls for a “big picture” approach to planning marketing and promotion programs and coordinating the various communication functions. To understand the role of advertising and promotion in today’s business world, one must recognize how a firm can use all the promotional tools to communicate with its customers. This 10th edition, with its integrated marketing communications perspective (the theme of the text), catapults the reader into the business practices of the 21st century. This Global Edition has been adapted to meet the needs of courses outside the United States and does not align with the instructor and student resources available with the U.S. edition.

A dissertation is often a crucial part of a Business and Management degree and can heavily influence the final mark. It can be extremely daunting: it requires a lengthy piece of writing and forms a major component for assessment. In fact, when faced with this task the first word that comes to mind for many students is simply ‘Help!’ This new and updated edition provides the necessary help, covering all the stages from the initial choice of subject through to the final writing. Stephen Rayner joins Brian White in this excellent guide to dissertations, which is equally useful to both undergraduates and postgraduates. It includes support on all aspects of the dissertation, from the student-supervisor relationship to evaluation and analysis of data.
