I’m eagerly awaiting publication of several books early in the New Year. Among them, Robert Scoble and Shel Israel’s Naked Conversations promises to be an intelligent commentary on the growing role of weblogs.
My colleagues Ralph Tench and Liz Yeomans have edited Exploring Public Relations for FT Prentice Hall (I’ve contributed a chapter on media relations). This should fill the gap for a comprehensive student textbook on public relations from a UK and international perspective.
And there’s a clash of the heavyweights to look forward to. Magda Pieczka and Jacquie L’Etang’s Public Relations: Critical Debates and Contemporary Problems will come up against Kevin Moloney’s second edition of Rethinking Public Relations and give us plenty to consider.
