In Section 3 readers learn about public relations best practices.

Specific topics include identifying stakeholders, assessing the environment, and knowing the tools of the trade.

The final section is devoted to the four-step public relations process, and explores how to establish goals and objectives, and implement a strategic plan. A thoughtful blend of writing on the theoretical and the practical, background and application, The Comprehensive Public Relations Reader is an ideal text for introductory courses in the discipline.

The anthology is also well-suited to classes in advertising, marketing, and strategic business communication.
