It's not just PR : public relations in society by W. Timothy Coombs( Book )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's Not Just PR: Public Relations in Society provides a balanced view of public relations as neither flawless nor sinister. In addition to investigating corporate issues in PR, such as pharmaceutical companies' use of PR to influence the medicines we use, this book further examines public relations as a tool for marginalized groups, focusing on its use in the non-profit sector, and citing relevant examples, like the use of PR to pressure Coca-Cola to reform labor practices in Latin America. This book also includes practical debate about power issues in public relations theory and practice."--Jacket

Code red in the boardroom : crisis management as organizational DNA by W. Timothy Coombs( )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Even several years after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, many organizations are ill prepared to deal with crises, often opting to address them only after the fact. In Code Red in the Boardroom, Tim Coombs argues that crisis management should be a variety of activities the organization performs daily to prevent crises from occurring. In this timely book, he defines the types of crises an organization might experience (both internal and external). He then draws from a wide variety of case examples, and show-cases cutting-edge techniques that are being tested in the public and private sectors to demonstrate how crisis management can be "hardwired" into the corporate DNA - so that sensing, preventing, and responding quickly to crises become everyone's responsibility."--Jacket

Each aspect of the crisis is discussed from pre-crisis stage to evaluation of crisis management efforts and post-crisis actions - with the ultimate goal of saving lives, reputations, and financial resources."--Jacket

Strategic communication, social media and democracy : the challenge of the digital naturals by W. Timothy Coombs( )

18 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today almost everyone in the developed world spends time online, and anyone involved in strategic communication must think digitally. The magnitude of change may be up for debate, but the trend is unstoppable, dramatically reconfiguring business models, organizational structures and even the practice of democracy. Strategic Communication, Social Media and Democracy provides a wholly new framework for understanding this reality, a reality that is transforming the way both practitioners and theoreticians navigate this fast-moving environment. Firmly rooted in empirical research, and resisting the lure of over-optimistic communication dreams, it explores both the potential that social media offers for changing the relationships between organizations and stakeholders, and critically analyzes what has been achieved so far. This innovative text will be of great interest to researchers, educators and advanced students in strategic communication, public relations, corporate communication, new media, social media and communication management" -- Back cover
