A Twenty-First Century Guide to Aldersonian Marketing Thought familiarizes a new generation of marketing students and scholars with the life, the writings and the intellectual legacy of Wroe Alderson, unquestionably the most influential marketing thinker of the mid-twentieth century. Half of the material presented was written by Alderson between 1948 and his death in 1965. The focus is on Alderson's seminal contributions to marketing theory but  then path--breaking material written by him in the areas of marketing management and marketing ethics is also reproduced. Contributions by others about Alderson include a biography and a number of previously published articles that build on Alderson's theoretical contributions, thus making those contributions even more relevant to today's business students. In addition, six original articles further explore Wroe Alderson's life, his work, his character and his intellectual impact. This book also contains a complete listing of publications by Alderson and a detailed bibliography of publications that discuss his work. The end result is a volume that provides readers with a real understanding of Alderson's most important and still relevant ideas.
