5.0 out of 5 stars Real World Public Relations March 25 2000
Format:Paperback
If ever a book was written that applied the concepts, theories, and functions of public relations to actual real-life senarios, this is the one. In their Public Relations Practices, Center and Jackson breathed life into theoretical public relations, bringing it into "the real world" with cases in several areas of public relations--media relations, consumer relations, employee relations, investor relations, community relations, crisis management, public and private issues, interests, & concerns, and most importantly, standards, values, & ethics. Two probable prerequisites to this book would be a book on the basic principles and practices of PR and a book on PR campaign strategies. Public Relations Practices is the door through which the reader is invited to enter "the real world" of PR. Anyone, from the student of public relations to the working practitioner with decades of experience, can greatly benefit from the information contained within this text.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best PR text I have ever read June 1 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read this book in a college public relations class. Now, as an account executive in a public relations firm, I still find it invaluable. This text places special emphasis on the evaluation of public relations, and thus it is a credit to our field. I can't recommend it highly enough. Once you have read some introductory book on PR principles, this is required reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Students Can Get Their Teeth into This Text Sept. 5 2009
By Dr. Joan E. Aitken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I use the Center, Jackson, Smith and Stansberry textbook in our Case Studies in Public Relations course.

The cases include famous and not so famous cases from recent decades, which introduce students to the array of potential communication and leadership problems they may encounter in the field.

This case study approach gives students an interesting and pragmatic approach for applying public relations and leadership principles. The book's readable style provides sufficient detail for understanding the cases so that students can really discuss what happened and what might have been done.

A pedagogically sound and well-constructed instructor's manual gives the professor a thorough background for using the case study approach to teaching.

The seventh edition is an excellent choice.
4.0 out of 5 stars Needed this book for class, but it's outdated. Jan. 16 2014
By Kate Bowman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It sufficed. It hasn't been updated since 2010 and there is alot that has happened in the world of communications in the past four years. I would suggest looking for other materials, unless you need some PR history, and in which case this book would be perfect for you. This gives details of the "syringe in my pepsi can," "tylenol tampering case," "Nestle baby formula," and "tobacco industry" issues and how they were handled through public relations.
4.0 out of 5 stars Tell the truth April 10 2013
By Dr. Wilson Trivino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The book is geared toward a course in Public Relations and builds on some of the fundamental theoretical frameworks of this field.
The book breaks down from employee, community, investor, consumer, and media relations with a mix of public issues and crisis management and ethical standards.
The common theme is no matter the issues always tell the truth and have a plan of action. Many of the case studies follow how some companies fail to follow this path and end up dealing with unexpected consequences. Effective public relations elicit mutually favorable behavior from both the organization and its public.
