This leading introductory student text has been completely revised. With new examples, new information on digital strategies and on community relations, it reflects best contemporary practice in this increasingly influential profession.

Public relations is a dynamic and rapidly growing field which offers a variety of career paths. Whether you're developing the public image of an organisation, dealing with the media or managing issues for a large company, you need strong communication skills and a sound understanding of public relations processes.

This widely used introduction to theory and professional practice has been fully revised and includes new material on community relations. Leading practitioners and lecturers outline the core principles of public relations in both the public and private sectors. They show how to develop effective public relations strategies and tactics and explain how to research, run and evaluate a successful public relations campaign. Drawing on a range of communication and public relations theories they discuss how to work with the media and how to use print, electronic and other forms of communication for maximum impact.

Richly illustrated with examples and case studies from Australia, New Zealand, Asia and other countries, Public Relations is an ideal starting point for anyone developing a career in public relations.
