Book Description
About the Book
The incredible social, economic, technological and political upheaval during the past three decades (1991-2020) called for a new book to portray the tinge and tone of the state-of-the-art public relations. The book updates public relations practice to the 21st to include new topics like theories and models of public relations, social media, CSR, social marketing, event management and sponsorship. From this angle, the book The New Age Public relations bridges the gap between the two centuries.

The book is intended to take the fog out of public relations. Anybody who considers himself to be somebody offers his idea of public relations at the drop of a hat. The problem has been further compounded by quacks who masquerade as public relations experts. Few care to study the true nature of the art. Those who do are surprised to find, it is not quite what they thought it was. A notable feature of the book is the witty references and numerous anecdotes and case studies in the Indian context to relieve the monotony of theoretical discourses.

In the scholarly Foreword to the book, Rev. Fr. Dr. J. Felix Raj, Vice Chancellor, St. Xavier's University, writes: this book will go a long way in familiarising the reader with new facets of this challenging profession and its ethical practice.

Detractors describe public relations as one of the most defused, refused. and confused arms of business management. Yet public relations is indispensable to a vibrant, democratic society. Ideally, it strikes harmony between the power and the people. It plays a mediatory role in bridging the gulf between 'we', the decision-makers in business and government, and 'they', the millions of workers in the farms, fields and factories. Public relations builds a relationship of trust and transparency between an organisation and the people who have a stake in the organisation.

The observation of the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man is pregnant with profound philosophical truths. Every passing day, our outlook undergoes imperceptible changes till some day we realise 'all our yesterdays' have become obsolete, probably irrelevant.

Thirty-two years ago, when I wrote a book on public relations, striking changes in socioeconomic and political sphere like the collapse of communism in its homeland, liberalisation of the Indian economy and the advent of globalisation were yet to happen.
