This book aspires to make an expedient contribution to the trust-based body of knowledge. Various disciplines analyze the notion of "trust", by addressing it from their own perspectives. The fact that the importance of multilevel and cross-level perspectives is gaining increasing attention in communication management has led to a call for examining trust across levels of communication analysis. The authors approach trust from the standpoint of different sub-branches of communication discipline, including brand management, public relations research, comparative advertising, health communication, political communication and digital communication. In addition, this book provides empirical evidence from a wide range of cases in Turkey, seeking to both reveal the existing situation in details and open up a world of new questions and lines of enquiry to pursue for future research.
