Encyclopedia of Public Relations
One of the goals of this book is to make the practice of public relations more adequately understood by an array of readers, including the general public. For better or worse, public relations plays a vital role in commerce, nonprofit activities, and the processes of government. Movies such as Wag the Dog give people a shocking view of how people might be able to manipulate the media by manufacturing news that shapes policy—thereby manipulating what people know, think about, and end up doing. That's a lot of power. It must be guided by a strong sense of professionalism and sound ethical principles.

Encyclopedia of Multicultural Psychology
Culture is important, and the focus of the Encyclopedia of Multicultural Psychology is to provide an index to the terms, concepts, and issues in the main-stream of field. Professional organizations since the 1970s have advocated and demonstrated the need for more comprehensive ideas when it comes to human behavior that include cultural background when studying psychological constructs. And, since the 1970s, international and ethnic minority psychologists alike reflected growing concerns regarding the meaning of psychology for all peoples. The field of multicultural and cross-cultural psychology has a relatively short history and is making its way into the foundations for training new psychologists. To this end, national accrediting organizations in psychology and licensure boards across the country continue to refine mandates for training that include a focus on multicultural psychology. As more multicultural research is compiled and the findings disseminated, the need for comprehensive texts like the Encyclopedia of Multicultural Psychology become stronger.
