9780761961482: Nike Culture: The Sign of the Swoosh (Cultural Icons series)

This book is one of the first to take an in-depth look at how an advertising image works. It situates the Nike swoosh logo in terms of political economy, sociology, culture and semiotics.

Nike Culture describes and deconstructs the themes and structures of Nike′s advertising, outlines the contradictions between image and practice, and explores the logic of the sign economy. In addition, by focusing on issues revolving around representations of race, class and gender, the desire for both community and recognition, and the construction of sport as a spiritual enterprise, the book offers insights into the cultural contradictions embedded in sports culture.

Review:

" In 'Nike Culture, ' part of the Sage 'Core Cultural Icons' series, Robert Goldman and Stephen Papson provide a fascinating deconstructive take on the television advertising strategies of that most successful of sportswear brands, Nike. The book 'Nike Culture' is packed fullof textual analysis. Paga after page is saturated with the pursuit of discursive regimes as the authors admirably struggle throughout complex praxes of Nike's intertextuality. This book's drive, its strength, comes from the identification of 'the swoosh' as the constant -- that which can be printed down of Nike's complex and transforming advertising approach."  

" The book is likely to stimulate a wide range of classroom discussions about the impact, both positive and negative, of advertising in our society."
