Time for the 2nd Edition of “Political Public Relations”

politicalpublicrelations-fNow Spiro Kiousis and I have begun working on the second and revised edition of Political Public Relations. Principles and Applications (Routledge, 2011). In that context, we are very interested in hearing from those who have used the book in their own research or teaching, or as a practitioner. A lot of things have happened – both in terms of research and practice – since the first edition was published, and we want to make sure that the second edition is as up-to-date as possible.

Thus, if you have read and/or used the book, and have any suggestions for the second edition, please let us know. Comments could, for example, be related to chapters that you think need to be updated, chapters or areas that were not covered in the first edition that should be included in the second, or scholars that we should invite to participate in the second edition. All constructive comments and suggestions are welcome!

In case you have comments and suggestions, please send them to jesper@jesperstromback.com.

 

New chapter on political public relations

It has been a while since this page was updated, and we apologize for that but promise that we will try to be more active here. If anyone has news about books, book chapters or journal articles that deal with political public relations, please let us know by sending an email to jesper@jesperstromback.com. The same holds if you have a call for chapters or papers that is relevant within the realm of political public relations.

Today the website has been updated however with a brand new chapter titled Political Public Relations. It is written by Spiro Kiousis and Jesper Strömbäck and included in the new handbook Political Communication, edited by Carsten Reinemann. The same book also includes a chapter, by the same authors, on Strategic Political Communication in Election Campaigns. Both chapters should be of interest to those interested in political public relations.
