Abstract

In our call for chapters for this Handbook of Critical Public Relations, we set the context as follows: “Critical theory has a long and fluctuating history – critical public relations is relatively recent. In the editors’ view a critical mass has been reached and this handbook is a way to mark it.” With our colours nailed to the mast for the Handbook as a potential tipping point, it is now up to you, the readers, and your responses over time, to decide if that has been achieved. In the same paragraph, we asked for “connections to – and differences from – critical theory, the current state of play of critical public relations across different areas, and its possible future directions”. While no book could be comprehensive, we think the Handbook addresses these.
