The Hidden Persuaders
New York: David McKay, 1957. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. viii, 275 pp. Green cloth with gilt spine lettering. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket, unclipped ($4.00). Spine panel sunned, jacket rubbed along edges with a few small chips and nicks. A bestselling expose of the use of psychological techniques in advertising. Its influence has extended far beyond the book's original context-- laughably sexualized and manipulative ads for cigarettes, cars with fins, pills for "harried housewife syndrome" etc.-- to inform the way consumers see ads to this day. As media critic Mark Crispin Miller noted in the 50th-anniversary reissue's foreword, no other "popular critique of advertising moved the public, or changed their views of that essential corporate craft, as deeply or enduringly.
