Volume One: The Development of Marketing Theory and Its Philosophical Underpinnings: documents the historical roots of marketing theory and traces the influences on its development, including differing philosophical perspectives.
Volume Two: Major Theoretical Debates and Contemporary Issues in Marketing Theory: looks at some of the major controversies that have permeated theoretical debates in marketing and considers the changing social and political contexts in which they developed.
Volume Three: The Impact of Theory on Representations of the Consumer and the Marketing Organization: examines how different theoretical lenses impact on conceptualizations of the consumer and the marketing organization (the role and function of marketing).
