The anthology features diverse viewpoints and carefully selected readings to offer students an understanding of public relations.

Additional sections explore subjects that encompass public relations planning and research, mass media channels, social media channels, and crisis communications. Students read selections about mass communication topics including ethics, copyright and trademark law, and persuasive writing.
