Consumer Tribes by Avi Shankar
Book DescriptionMarketing and consumer research has traditionally conceptualized consumers as individuals- who exercise choice in the marketplace as individuals not as a class or a group. However an important new perspective is now emerging that rejects the individualistic view and focuses on the reality that human life is essentially social, and that who we are is an inherently social phenomenon. It is the tribus, the many little groups we belong to, that are fundamental to our experience of life. Tribal Marketing shows that it is not individual consumption of products that defines our lives but rather that this activity actually facilitates meaningful social relationships. The social 'links' (social relationships) are more important than the things (brands etc.) The aim of this book is therefore to offer a systematic overview of the area that has been defined as "cultures of consumption"- consumption microcultures, brand cultures, brand tribes, and brand communities. It is though these that students of marketing and marketing practitioners can begin to genuinely understand the real drivers of consumer behaviour. It will be essential to everyone who needs to understand the new paradigm in consumer research, brand management and communications management.

Bernard Cova is Professor of Marketing at Euromed Marseilles - School of Management, France and Visiting Professor at Universita Bocconi, Milan, Italy.

A member of many tribes, Robert V. Kozinets is Associate Professor of Marketing at York University's Schulich School of Business in Toronto, Canada. His tribal affiliations include consumer researchers, anthropologists, media scholars, Trekkers, Burners, coffee connoisseurs, modern primitives, Star Woids, X-Philes, greens, gamers, activists, technophiles, videophiles, technopagans, netnographers, and bloggers-and he has written about most of them in his research. That research has been published in journals such as the Journal of Marketing, the Journal of Consumer Research, the Journal of Marketing Research, and the Journal of Retailing. His blog and much more detail is available on his website at www.kozinets.net. Avi Shankar is a Senior Lecturer in Marketing and Consumer Research in one of the UK's premier schools of management at the University of Bath.
