Prepares Readers for Public Relations Work with an Emphasis on Ethics and Contemporary, Real-world Applications

Fraser Seitel’s writing combines a contemporary, real-life approach that marries his experience in the field with a light-hearted, energetic prose style. This Thirteenth Edition has been thoroughly updated to include recent public relations cases with a continued emphasis on ethics, using examples that span several fields and countries. Building on the successes of the previous edition, this text remains the most visual text on the market, as well as the most comprehensive in its discussion of social media as it relates to public relations.
