It provides a systematic and coherent statement of the crucial guidelines and philosophical underpinnings of public relations.
Rhetorical and Critical Approaches to Public Relations II addresses the rhetorical/critical tradition's contribution to the definition of public relations and PR practice; explores the role of PR in creating shared meaning in support of publicity and promotional organizational efforts; considers the tradition's contributions to risk, crisis, and issues dimensions of public relations; and highlights ethics, character, and responsible advocacy.
