Subject: International Consumer Behaviour
This is the seventh edition of the successful Australian adaptation of Consumer Behaviour by Quester et al (formerly Neal et al). Pascale Quester has taken the lead for this edition, along with Simone Pettigrew, and together these two greatly respected authors established a highly credible author team. They have produced a well-organised book that starts with the decision-making process before clearly articulating the various influences upon it.
This edition covers contemporary topics such as social and mobile consumer behaviour, environmentally friendly products, ethics and the impact of the Internet on consumer protection and privacy. Each chapter is enhanced by a suite of fresh new vignettes, case studies and advertisements, both global and local.
Currency and accuracy are once again a key strength of this text with all new case studies, adverts, data and research. The cases also reflect the increasingly global nature of consumer behaviour with contributions from academics across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Middle East. This rich print and digital package guides students' exploration into the field of consumer behaviour through a student-friendly layout and design.
Full ConnectPlus and eBook integration including subscription to the Quester AdForum microsite providing relevant, up-to-date and easy to find video material.
All new cases, adverts and boxed features in every chapter featuring Spotify, virtual grocery stores, Twitter, Facebook, fashion and faith, tween fashion and many more.
Excellent local, regional and global coverage.
Enhanced focus on social and mobile media, online shopping and digital technology.
