Every agency and faction of the federal government from the President to the Post Office has a public relations element for the purpose of explaining their policies, spinning bad news, and touted their accomplishments. In a very real season, contemporary politics and governance dictates that public relations is public administration. Organized, compiled, and edited by Mordecai Lee, "Government Public Relations: A Reader" is a compendium of articles, essays, and commentaries that address the theory, practice, and context of government public relations; underscores the importance, value and uses of PR as tools to advance the goals of government; covers the role of PR in media Relations, public reporting responsiveness, out-reach, and crisis management; examines the increasing use of nonprofit agencies to deliver government funded services; considers future trends likely to influence the field of public relations in government; provides an introductory overview, discussion questions, and a list of additional reading for each section; includes an extensive appendix consisting of an annotated bibliography of relevant historical literature; and compiles contemporary writings from international sources. A superb introductory text, "Government Public Relations" is strongly recommended as a core addition to professional, academic, and community library reference collections in the areas of Political Science, Business & Management, and Public Administration.
