"This book is ideally suited for doctoral students . . . all chapters offer well-developed summaries of research in the particular field and guidance on future research."
The Handbook of Marketing presents a major retrospective and prospective overview of the field of marketing, and provides a landmark reference at a time when many of the traditional boundaries and domains within the marketing discipline have been subject to change.
The Handbook frames, assesses and synthesizes the work in the field and helps to define and shape its current and future development. It includes contributions from leading scholars in the field, and the input of an international and extremely distinguished advisory board of marketing academics.
The Handbook of Marketing will be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and academics in marketing.
"The Handbook of Marketing is different… that Barton Weitz and Robin Wensley are its editors should suggest something out of the ordinary. A glance at the contributors (e.g., Wilkie. Webster, Day, Shocker, Keller, Hauser, Winer, Stewart. Parasuraman. Zeithaml) puts the matter to rest. The Handbook is an extraordinary effort. The blurb on the dust jacket is an understatement-the "Handbook will be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, academics, and thoughtful practitioners in marketing"-the book is far more than that….. in short, the Handbook is probably invaluable to all academic researchers"

"Handbook of Marketing is a rich compilation of thorough reviews in the field of marketing management. The editors have selected premier marketing scholars and have given them the opportunity to examine their area of expertise in a format much less confining than those provided by the major journals in the field. The authors have taken this opportunity and have done an outstanding job not only of reviewing and structuring the extensive body of thought in many major areas of marketing management but also of providing valuable suggestions for further research. They have brought together major contributions from the field of marketing and from other related disciplines. I strongly encourage marketing scholars to consider Handbook of Marketing. The text will certainly appeal to those with interests in marketing management; it may also be useful to those who are more focused on methodological issues but interested in topics that need additional, rigorous investigation…. In summary, Weitz and Wensley should be congratulated for the excellent work in developing Handbook of Marketing. The book fills a major void in the marketing literature on marketing management and will serve the discipline for many years to come"
