This book, Provocateur, does an amazing job at what author Cortese calls "deconstructing" advertising. He describes the dominance of men, the portrayal of women and many images promoting the continuing prevalence of prejudice in society of minorties. It evaluates the cause and effect of these portrayals and also addresses the "why". It calls to attention advertiser's drive to sell a product or idea. Sometimes, it does both. Cortese knows his stuff and lets you know it in this book. Great job at breaking it down and keeping the concepts separate

Though we often hear that we live in a period of unprecedented gender and racial equality, both racism and sexism persist in a most telling area-the ads with which we are inundated every day in newspapers and magazines and online. Cortese examines the ideologies surrounding gender and race by delving into the presentation of women, ethnic minorities, children, and anyone who is qualified as other in society.
In his book Provocateur: Images of Women and Minorities in Advertising Anthony Cortese says that a key component of the passive, subordinate role of women is their lack of voice. The sexual objectification of women requires that they remain silent," Cortese says. He adds that, while the masculine gender role is valued, the feminine counterpart is disregarded or devalued. Cortese calls this image a "provocateur," and says that this unreal image can only be achieved through the purchase of vast quantities of beauty products. The perfect provocateur is a mere facade. Even the models themselves do not look in the flesh as impeccable as they are depicted in ads.
