Review:

"PR is interesting reading ... the book is content rich."

(Walt Romanow Canadian Journal of Communication)

"... a skillful combination of military, economic and social history, at once rigorous and readable, and copiously illustrated. It's still the first volume I would offer to a newcomer to the general subject."

(Brian Kappler The Gazette)

"... this book warrants a place in public-relations course studies."

(Sidney Allinson CBRA)

"The book will be of interest to those seeking to learn what public relations practitioners and consultants really do. Corporate executives will have a good chance to expand their personal knowledge of public relations methods, the same for government officials, as well as students of business and public affairs."

(George Bonavia From my Bookshelf)
