For those interested in political public relations and government communication, the new book Government Communication. Cases and Challenges can be recommended. The book is edited by Karen Sanders and Maria José Canel, and includes chapters on government communication in 15 countries across the world. It also includes two broader, thematic chapters, one mapping the research field of government communication, the other summarizing and synthesizing the results from the different country cases.
Now the latest issue of the International Journal of Press/Politics has just been published, which includes an article on government communication. The article is written by Karen Sanders, Maria José Canel Crespo and Christina Holtz-Bacha and titled: “Communicating Governments: A Three-Country Comparison of How Governments Communicate with Citizens”.
