On this page we have collected books that explicitly focus on political public relations and that apply public relations theories to political contexts and processes. We have also included some books that may not apply political relations theories, but which nevertheless substantially focus on political public relations. By listing the books here we do not necessarily endorse them, but think they may be worth reading for those interested in political public relations. The books are ordered by publication date.
