The contributors also explore a variety of recent campaign dimensions including community-oriented campaigns, entertainment-education campaigns, digital games, mobile technology, and social media. Public Communication Campaigns, Fourth Edition will be a valuable resource for both students and researchers in the fields of communication, journalism, public relations, mass media, advertising, and public health programs.
