"From Latin Americas coffe and Thai silks to Danish furniture and Hollywood films, geographical associations add untold meaning and value to commodities. Yet while social science research has long focused on the 'Country of Origin' and it inextricable links to consumer behaviour, it has failed to develop critical ways of thinking about the geographies of brands, and branding that encompass and extend beyond this national frame. Origination: The Geographies of brands and Branding addresses this gap by introducing the innovative theoretical and conceptual framework of origination to understand how actors involved in commodity brands and branding create meaning and value through processes of geographical association. To illustrate concepts and facilitate understanding, origination is explored through an in-depth analysis of Newcastle Brown Ale; 'national' origination is addresses by examination of the iconic Burberry brand; and 'global' origination is discussed in relation to the Apple brand. Through rigorous research, Origination: The Geographies of Brands and Branding provides innovative insights into the integral role of geographical associations in creating meaning and value in brands and branding in the contemporaty international economy"--Jacket.
