This book provides an executive overview of the field of public relations with a focus on what managers need to know to master the function quickly and effectively.

Throughout the text, we integrate the academic with the professional by asking: How can an executive use this knowledge to make the most of the public relations function, department, and initiatives in order to help their whole organization be successful?
