- For Experts
The academic side of public relations is often overlooked, but author Anthony Davis plunges in and takes a formal look at the often misunderstood practice of PR. Davis has given a lot of thought to the theories that drive PR, and the various behavioral and attitudinal models PR professionals should know. Occasionally, this gets densely academic, as he loses sight of the forest to dwell on specific trees. But, Davis is diligent in presenting almost every environmental factor that affects the practice of PR. With regard for the amount of work it would take to put all the ideas he has gathered and generated into practice, getAbstract recommends this book to veteran PR professionals, to the author's fellow academicians and to students, who should use it for background to complement their PR courses.
