DEADLY PERSUASION Why Women And Girls One of the first points that Kilbourne makes clear in Deadly Persuasion is that advertising does influence people which is why newspapers and magazines engage in cutthroat competition to convince corporations to place ads in their publications on the principle that their readership consists of the most valuable demographic What appear in those ads though are images that euate emotional well being fr Deadly Persuasion Why Women and Girls Must Not Retrouvez Deadly Persuasion Why Women and Girls Must Fight the Addictive Power of Advertising et des millions de livres en stock sur fr Achetez neuf ou d'occasion fr Deadly Persuasion Why Women and Girls Must Not Achetez Deadly Persuasion Why Women and Girls Must Fight the Addictive Power of Advertising de Kilbourne Jean ISBN sur Deadly Persuasion Why Women and Girls Must From cigarettes and alcohol to sexuality and exploitation Deadly Persuasion covers a vast variety of topics all relating back to how the advertising world portrays their product Jean Kilbourne speaks on a multitude of subjects all pertaining to advertisements Deadly persuasion why women and girls must Get this from a library Deadly persuasion why women and girls must fight the addictive power of advertising Jean Kilbourne The average American views three thousand ads in one day Yet remarkably most of us believe we are not influenced by advertising In this lively and shocking expose Jean Kilbourne reveals how CNN 'Deadly Persuasion' November 'Deadly Persuasion' 'Why Women and Girls Must Fight the Addictive Power of Advertising' by Jean Kilbourne November Web posted at am EST GMT Deadly Persuasion Words | Bartleby Deadly Persuasion Why Women and Girls Must Fight The Addictive P. There is no greater expert on the subject of how aggressive marketing can degrade the uality of a culture than Jean Kilbourne As a writer filmmaker and internationally recognized expert on advertising addiction and women s issues it has been estimated that she has given lectures at roughly half the universities and colleges in the US Her uniue talent is her ability to see and expose the underlying strategies and tools employed by purveyors of all manner of goods to persuade us methods that seem all the shocking when we actually see them Her book Deadly Persuasion which has also been published under the title Can t Buy My Love is a fascinating study of the power of the ubiuitous ads that surround us in our every waking momentBefore I go on I ll point out that to oppose the manner in which much modern advertising is performed is not to oppose a healthy capitalistic economy a system that uite clearly has worked better than any other This is not a diatribe against the availability of every imaginable trifle or the competition amongst companies to market a useful product It is rather about certain methods that advertisers continue to use that have Kilbourne asserts a negative effect on the way we interact and the way we view ourselves others and material goods It is about devaluing the currency of genuine human contactThe book considers advertisements in magazines as television and considers a number of different kinds of campaigns in dedicated chapters There are individual discussions on alcohol marketing the auto industry food tobacco and the exploitation of human relationships Advertising encourages us not only to objectify each other but also to feel that our most significant relationships are with the products we buy Kilbourne states in her introduction Although we like to think of advertising as unimportant it is in fact the most important aspect of the mass media It is the point She goes on to show how a key goal is to make us insecure about our present lives for example as is done in the ubiuitous women s magazines that juxtapose images of cheesecakes or pies on the cover with articles on weight loss tips and images of skinny models inside After all people who feel empty make great consumers Advertising twists the notion that we can recreate ourselves not through dedicated work but merely by purchasing the right product It often sells a great deal than products It sells values images and concepts of love and sexuality romance success and perhaps most important normalcy we are surrounded by hundred thousands of messages every day that link our deepest emotions to products that objectify people and trivialize our most heartfelt moments and relationships To give some examples of the objectification she cites I ll just mention the commodity that receives perhaps the most lavish attention from Madison Avenue the automobile Kilbourne devotes an early chapter to the subject of car advertising Can an engine pump the valves in your heart and through a series of oddly similar examples shows how many ad campaigns aim to humanize their machines Rekindle the romance If anyone should ask go ahead and show them your pride and joy this under a picture of a wallet showing two photographs one of a couple of children and the family dog the other a Honda We don t sell cars we merely facilitate love connections Stylish responsive fun if it were a man you d marry it Drive the new Paseo fall in love She loves her new Mustang Oh and whatshisname too A change from you high maintenance relationship It s not a car its an aphrodesiac What makes you happy Is it the sparkle in a lover s smile Or the warmth of a goodnight kiss But could it be a car While some cars can hug the road very few can actually seduce it And so on Kilbourne does than list these and countless other examples she deconstructs them and their implicationsAnother troubling issue that the book addresses is the pernicious effect of advertising that is directly aimed at children This is even troubling in light of studies that show that young children don t differentiate between the shows and the advertisements The chapter on children led me to wonder how much of our national drug abuse problem among teens is stoked by the way advertising is generally presented While certainly the causes are many and varied I think about my own typical childhood growing up with hours of television every day And the ads are still relentlessly telling us that purchasing a product makes wonderful things happen a man opens a soda and a marching band explodes out of his TV into his room the interior of an SUV becomes a landscape with waterfalls wearing the right brand of jeans causes your world to shift into a nighttime city scene where a lovely brunette looks at you longingly It seems uite rare any to see to a commercial any where use of a produce does not result in some kind of supernatural effect Perhaps in the process of growing up when we come to realize that the implicit fantastical promises of the ads are not true perhaps this adds to the appeal of drugs that can help make the world seem as magical as we thought it would beIn short if you ve ever wondered how advertisers try to manipulate us and what the conseuences of the onslaught of false promises might be I highly recommend Kilbourne s fascinating book You will not look at your TV the same again and you ll likely come to agree with the author s observation that advertising and religion share a belief in transformation and transcendance but in the world of advertising enlightenment is achieved instantly by buying material goods And that although one may love their possessions they cannot love one back Jack Kerouac first points that Kilbourne makes clear

It s just not in me to give Kilbourne a bad review for all the amazing research she has collected for us but the book s formatting is a bit of a nightmare for the academic Where the sources are listed in the back to keep the flow of the text but the text isn t marked with the sources and it s a massive headache to flip through the book s text notes then biblio Oy However she provides some great uotes Although repetitive it seems readable to the average reader Deadly Persuasion first builds a case that advertisement does affect us The fact is that much of advertising s power comes from the belief that advertising does not affect us The most effective kind of propaganda is that which is not recognized as propaganda how prevalent advertising is and how we are always the target and being sold something even when the ads are seemly anti advertising Hey it s businessMajor points in the book are how ads are teaching us to disassociate from reality by tossing aside our relationships with people for reliable products that promise a dreamy paradise with a chapter on car ads food ads violence against women and body image for women and girls The More You Subtract The More You Add chapter is probably the chapter most interesting for those that are coming into Deadly Persuasion from her documentary series Killing Us Softly The biggest concerns Kilbourne has are reestablishing healthy relationships with other people and the way advertisers downplay the horrific affects of alcohol and cigarettes We must recognize that all of these problems addictions eating disorders male violence including battering and rape child abuse and increasing commercialization of the culture the exploitation of children by advertisers gun violence and the objectification of women and girls are related We cannot solve these problems by treating them as separate issues 293 Do advertisements cause all these problems Kilbourne is totally forward in saying not always but ads are both creating and reflecting these problematic attitudes and they re presenting them over and over again We definitely should pay attention I find the entire book compelling depressing but overall a call to action that is relevant as ever
