Overview

With the very latest insights from the world of communication studies into the nature of corporate reputation, this new addition to Wiley-Blackwell’s series of handbooks on communication and media reflects the growing importance of large businesses’ public reputations. It fills a number of lacunae in the research literature at the same time as providing updated and revised expressions of classic theories in the field. Renowned international scholars assess a range of aspects of corporate communication theory in a style that is accessible to senior-level students of journalism and marketing.

Large businesses and corporations can no longer rely on default goodwill from the public, but must be active promoters of the public good they claim to provide, rather than passive institutions reacting to negative happenstance. This book provides evidence that the benefits of doing so are clear: for corporations, organizational learning and a sense of social responsibility result in tangible investment returns. Academics from various disciplines within the field of communications—journalism, advertising, corporate and organizational communication, media law, history, and public relations—come together to offer a state-of-the-art compendium of all that communication studies has to offer the study of corporate reputation.
