Features: Topical and timely casebooks make current public relations events understandable and relevant to students. Examples include the Dixie Chicks and their image (Ch. 1), the Bush administration and Hurricane Katrina (Ch. 6), and Wal-Mart s efforts to improve its reputation (Ch. 6).

Global boxes broaden students perspectives by showing public relations activities and campaigns on a global scale. Examples such as the censorship ofYahoo, Google, and Microsoft in China (Ch. 6), the breast cancer awareness campaign in Pakistan (Ch. 7), and the PR war between Israel and the Palestinians underscore the international and intercultural implications of public relations (Ch. 10). Ethics boxes provide real-life ethical situations that encourage students to discuss various ethical aspects of the profession and draw their own conclusions. These features focus on actual situations such as paying journalists in Iraq to write favorable stories (Ch. 2), when to resign from an account (Ch. 4), and the ethics of issuing misleading news releases (Ch. 5). Insight boxes with how-to information and checklists help students master the practical tactics of the field, including how to write a news release (Ch. 1), pitch a story via e-mail (Ch. 3), and select media channels for distribution.
