Branding is possibly the most powerful commercial and cultural force on the planet.

Iconic names such as Coca-Cola, Nike, Manchester United, Harry Potter, and Google are known and recognized by millions of people worldwide.

As the market economy spreads across the world, brands are becoming ever more prevalent.

The Apple brand has been valued at $98 billion - more than the GDP of Slovakia.

Every day, we're exposed to more than 3500 brand messages. And even thoughpeople are increasingly brand-aware and brand-sceptical, they are nevertheless seduced by brands.

We may reject the whole brand system, but we still wouldn't be parted from our Apple Macs.

Brands are impossible to escape. In this Very Short Introduction Robert Jones discusses the rising omnipresence of brands, and analyses how they work their magic.

He considers the incredible potency of brands as a commercial, social, and cultural force, and looks at the many different kinds of brands that exist - from products, services, and artistic properties, to companies, charities, sports clubs, and political parties.

Defining what we mean by the word 'brand', he explores both the positive and negative aspects ofbrands.

Finally Jones considers the business of branding, and asks whether the idea of brands and branding is starting to decline, or whether it has a long future ahead.
