This innovative series of short-form books provides a new forum to critically evaluate contemporary scholarship and global practice in all aspects of PR and communications. It aims to promote and provoke new ways of thinking, providing an opportunity to reframe public relations beyond traditional frameworks, reflecting new interpretations, emerging research, and insights from different fields. One goal of the series is to bridge the perceived gap between the "academics" and "professionals" in the PR and communications fields, and to introduce diverse voices discussing theories and practice in the global economy. The concise format (20-40,000 words) offers both new and established scholars an accessible and supportive opportunity for publishing and disseminating new ideas and emerging research.
