Summary
As global corporations compete for the hearts and wallets of consumers who not only buy their products but willingly advertise them from head to toe -- witness today's schoolbooks, superstores, sporting arenas, and brand-name synergy -- a new generation has begun to battle consumerism. In this provocative study, readers learn how the Nike swoosh has changed from an athletic status-symbol to a metaphor for sweatshop labor, how teenaged McDonald's workers are risking their jobs to join the Teamsters, and how 'culture jammers' utilize spray paint, computer-hacking acumen, and anti-propagandist wordplay to undercut the slogans and meanings of billboard ads (as in 'Joe Chemo' for 'Joe Camel'). A call to action, this text is meant to challenge students of sociology, economics, popular culture, international affairs, and marketing.
