Culture and Public Relations explores the impact of culture – societal and organizational – through the global lens of public relations. Structuring the volume around three themes -- culture as an environment for public relations; the culture of PR globally; and the impact of PR on culture -- the editors bring together compelling discussions on such questions as how spirituality, religion, and culture have affected public relations, and how public relations culture has been affected by the "corporate cultures" of business enterprises. Additionally, the volume provides studies on the effect of culture on public relations practice in specific countries. With contributors from Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America, this collection offers international perspectives on a topic that is growing increasingly important in public relations study and practice. It is required reading for scholars, researchers, and students in public relations and also has much to offer the business discipline, for those seeking to integrate culture and communication to their practices.

Kai Brauer analysiert eine Kernfrage der Sozialkapitaldebatte: Wie ist bürgerschaftliches Engagement unter den Vorzeichen von Individualisierung und ökonomischer Krise möglich? Der Autor hat eine Community Study in Clanton, Iowa durchgeführt. Diese ethnographische Studie eines erfolgreichen Falles zivilen Engagements macht deutlich, dass die den Ort prägenden Clans und Cliquen keineswegs in traditionalen Ligaturen gefangen sind, sondern selber als Bestandteile des Individualisierungsprozesses wirken. Zur Definition und Förderung von bürgerschaftlichem Engagement werden auf fallrekonstruktiver Basis Strukturprinzipien vorgeschlagen, die eigenständige Koordinaten bereitstellen. Diese lenken jenseits der Messung solidarischer Einstellungen und der Zählung von Vereinsmitgliedschaften den Blick auf die günstigsten Verfahren und Organisationsprinzipien zivilen Engagements.

Immer häufiger stellt sich die Frage nach der Zukunft und der Bedeutung von Public Relations, dabei werden die Antworten im Rückgriff auf wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse und auf die praktizierten Normen sittlichen Verhaltens gesucht. Es verwundert folglich nicht, daß für PR Primate des "Sollens" gefordert werden, um Defizite in der Praxis zu überwinden. PR-Ethik soll PR zu mehr Professionalismus verhelfen, ihr eine neue Perspektive öffnen und mehr Glaubwürdigkeit nach innen wie nach außen gewährleisten.Die Herbert-Quandt-Stiftung hat diese Entwicklung zum Anlaß genommen, Wissenschaftler aus PR-bezogenen Disziplinen zur Diskussion von Ethik-Fragen einzuladen. Schwerpunktthemen waren philosophische und ethische Aspekte von PR, Organisation und Management, kommunikationswissenschaftliche Ansätze und denkbare Folgen des Nachdenkens über PR-Ethik für Praxis und PR-Forschung.
