"As a professor who has taught community relations for 15 years, I can shout: WHAT A GREAT TEXTBOOK! This is the best community relations textbook there is. When I thought it couldn't get any better, here comes the fourth edition, which leaps into current issues and challenges. I particularly enjoyed the insights on social and electronic media. This book perfectly balances theory and practice and gives students real-life scenarios to demonstrate how to apply theory to practice."
--Sandi Estep, Professor of Educational Administration, Governors State University, USA
I have used all three editions of this text and will choose the fourth as well. This text continues to meet the needs of school-community relations courses."
