Political marketing

A comparative perspective

Darren G. Lilleker and Jennifer Lees-Marshment

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Considers the problems with the market-oriented approach, examining the difficulties faced by New Labour in government
  • Shows how political marketing has spread to the new democracies of Brazil and Peru, the PR-elected governments of Europe including Germany and Austria, and the new devolved systems in Northern Ireland and Scotland
  • Discusses how Sinn Fein have used a sales-oriented approach to win support for their ideals
