In addition to the agency histories, one finds entries for advertisers, brands, and campaigns (Airlines; Geritol; Kraft Foods, Inc.; Yahoo!); individuals (Burnett, Leo; Hearst, William Randolph; Packard, Vance); practical and theoretical aspects of advertising (Infomercial, Music and jingles, Package design, Psychographics, Targeting); and social, cultural, and historical issues (Consumer movement; Cultural symbols; Minorities: Representations in advertising). There are also 52 entries dealing with the history of advertising in specific countries or regions (Canada, Middle East). Ad agency profiles start with brief chronologies of key dates and alphabetical lists of major clients. Advertiser profiles include lists of principal agencies. Most entries conclude with a list of further reading. Entry length generally ranges from one to six or seven pages. The set is richly illustrated, and each volume includes a 24-page section of color plates that are cross-referenced from related entries. The hundreds of illustrations, most of which came from the Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising, and Marketing History in Duke University's Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library, enhance the usefulness of the volumes and bring the words to life.
The third volume ends with appendixes: "Advertising Hall of Fame," "Notable U.S. Advertising Degree Programs," "Top U.S. Advertising Agencies," "Top U.S. Advertisers," "Top Worldwide Advertising Agencies," and "Top Worldwide Advertisers." A lengthy, detailed index identifies acronyms and provides access by keywords, authors/titles, institutes, companies, individuals, associations, quotes/jingles from commercials, products, and more. The level of detail in the index helps compensate for the lack of see also references.
This encyclopedia complements Gale's Encyclopedia of Major Marketing Campaigns (2000), which profiles 500 specific advertising efforts (for example, Timex Corporation's "It Takes a Lickin' and Keeps on Tickin'"; Wendy International's "Where's the Beef?"). Well-researched, thorough, and fascinating, it belongs in all business collections and most academic and large public libraries. RBB
