Authenticity is everywhere: political leaders invoke the idea to gain our support, advertisers use it to sell their products. But is authenticity a dangerous hoax? What is, and is not, authentic has been hotly debated ever since the concept was invented. Many academics have sought to "unmask" authenticity claims as deceptive. This book takes a different approach. In chapters covering historical and contemporary examples, the authors explore why authenticity, real or imagined, exercises such a powerful hold on our imaginations. The chapters trace how invocations of authenticity borrow from one another, across arenas such as philosophy and theology, encounters with nature, leisure, and mass consumption, political and corporate leadership, left-wing and right-wing ideologies. This cultural history of authenticity is of interest to academic and lay readers alike, who are interested in the significance and history of a concept that shapes how we understand ourselves and the world we live in.

The text includes chapters on marketing strategy in Europe and business culture. It also covers such issues as the expansion of the Union, the development of the Euro as a single currency, economic and monetary policy.

'When the next generation of public affairs practitioners look back to the beginning of the 21st century they will recognise the Handbook of Public Affairs as the cornerstone text on which global practice came to be based' - Tom Spencer, Executive Director, European Centre for Public Affairs 'Excelling in the practice of corporate public affairs in the 21st century will necessitate bringing together two competencies: possessing a solid professional foundation base don time-tested principles, and having the ability to reach beyond the basics by adapting the best current thinking, practices, and models available. Professionals can enhance both competencies by reading the Handbook of Public Affairs' - Brian Hawkinson, Director Center for Public Affairs Management/Public Affairs Council Washington 'Understanding the imperatives of stakeholders and special interest groups in the public domain is of increasing importance to leaders in both business and politics. However, knowing how to influence these imperatives, and design communications to proactively affect change, is a well sought-after commodity. Public affairs professionals not only understand these dynamics, but constantly strive to ensure continuous improvement in the counsel they provide and in the results they deliver. As more and more people in business, government, NGO and not-for-profit sectors are seeking out the services of public affairs practitioners, this Handbook will help readers gain a better appreciation for strategies and tactics that comprise successful public affairs campaigns' - Chris Benedetti, President, Public Affairs Association of Canada 'The Handbook is a landmark development in the field of Public Affairs, bringing together in a single volume contributions from key academics and practitioners in the field. It offers a comprehensive overview of the field for the first time and is an essential reference book to underpin practice, teaching and research in the discipline' - Professor Andrew Lock, Leeds University Business School 'The Handbook of Public Affairs is a comprehensive guide to best knowledge and practices in the field. Everyone – from business school deans to chief executive officers to seasoned public affairs executives – can find information in the Handbook of Public Affairs to help them achieve their reputation- and public policy-related goals' - Douglas G. Pinkham, President, Public Affairs Council 'For years, there has been a glaring lack of substantive academic literature to underpin the development of the public affairs profession. Throughout his distinguished career, Craig Fleisher has made a vast contribution to filling that void. In the Handbook of Public Affairs, Craig and his co-editor Phil Harris, have brought together the best minds in the field from around the globe to create a text that will surely support the development of new programs and new careers for the public affairs practitioners of tomorrow' - Randall Pearce, General Manager Ipsos Mackay Public Affairs, Sydney 'The Handbook of Public Affairs will be a valuable resource for the growing number of public affairs practitioners who seek to balance an appreciation of the global evolution of their profession with the 'hands-on' reality of applying core concepts and theories to their organisation's management practices' - Alexis Lindsay, Director, The Centre for Corporate Public Affairs (Australia) Public Affairs and particularly government relations/lobbying, have evolved in recent years from a tactic adopted by organizations to amend occasional legislation to become a managerial strategy to achieve competitive advantage. At the fore-front of research and practice in Public Affairs, this Handbook draws upon the expertise of leading figures in the field to provide a comprehensive overview of a huge growth area in organisations' strategic thinking. Articles evoke pan-national experience and are organised into four sections to help readers navigate issues and draw comparisons. Sections cover: - investigation into the development and meaning of Public Affairs - the management and practice of Public Affairs within organisations - global case studies - an overview of scholarly developments.

"It has been almost 40 years since John F. Kennedy campaigned for the presidency and introduced a revolutionary approach to campaigning that involved the latest, sophisticated marketing and communication strategies. If Kennedy were alive today and approaching his eightieth birthday, he would no doubt be amazed and intrigued to witness the way in which modern political campaigning has changed since he first redefined the process in 1960. Indeed, the advances and changes in political campaigning and marketing over the past 40 years parallel the explosive innovations that have been made in so many other fields with ties to technology, such as communication, science, and medicine. Today, political campaigns at all levels, from national races to state and local contests, depend on increasingly sophisticated marketing techniques." --Peter D. Hart, President, Peter D. Hart Research Assoc. This unique handbook brings together in one comprehensive volume the leading-edge thinking of some of the foremost political consultants, marketing experts, and political scientists in the world. Scholars and political professionals from nine different countries have contributed original chapters that provide a state-of-the-art review of the role of marketing "good and bad" in political campaigns. The handbook's 40 chapters are organized in six sections that provide an exhaustive review of political marketing: Conceptual and historical origins of political marketing Management of political campaigns Analysis of the political marketplace Development of political strategies Execution of political campaigns Political marketing and democracy Each section includes a rich blend of academic and practitioner authors, often collaborating on chapters, resulting in a rich blend of theory and practice.
