Applied Public Relations
Cases in Stakeholder Management, 3rd Edition
Routledge – 2015 – 276 pages
Series: Routledge Communication Series
With its practical orientation and scope, Applied Public Relations is the ideal text for any public relations case studies or public relations management course that places an emphasis on stakeholder groups.
Through the presentation of current cases covering a wide variety of industries, locations, and settings, Kathy Richardson and Marcie Hinton examine how real organizations develop and maintain their relationships, offering valuable insights into business and organizational management practices. The book’s organization of case studies allows instructors to use the text in several ways: instructors can focus on specific stakeholders by using the chapters presented; they can focus on particular issues, such as labor relations or crisis management by selecting cases from within several chapters; or they can select cases that contrast campaigns with ongoing programs or managerial behaviors.
A focus on ethics and social responsibility underlies the book, and students are challenged to assess the effectiveness of the practices outlined and understand the ethical implications of those choices.
This Third Edition features:
The cases presented in the third edition of Richardson and Hinton’s Applied Public Relations will appeal to faculty and students alike. Organized by stakeholder group, the cases are fresh, involving a wide range of organizations and activists, and sure to provoke dynamic class discussions about strategy, tactics and ethics.
