On this page we have collected book chapters that explicitly focus on political public relations and that apply public relations theories to political contexts and processes. By listing the chapters here we do not necessarily endorse them, but think they are worth reading for those interested in political public relations. The chapters are ordered by publication date. If you miss any chapter here, please send us an email and we would be happy to add it.
