Over 30 cases from 2013 to 2019 are offered to provide an up-to-date account of current developments, with a closer look at the ethical challenges and controversies surrounding branded entertainment. The book also provides a review of branded entertainment-related literature in order to help the readers to understand this growing marketing discipline.
