  • Dedicates a full chapter to business-to-business public relations, one of the fastest-growing areas in public relations, providing students with a competitive advantage in an area that many texts do not cover.
  • Introduces RECAP, a critical-thinking approach to case study analysis, and includes ACT (Advanced Critical Thinking) Files in every chapter, allowing students to master the critical thinking skills they need for the classroom and their careers.
