Public Affairs – A Global Perspective
This excellent book clearly demonstrates that public affairs is now a global industry. It highlights the similarities - and the differences - in the way in which lobbying is practiced in different markets worldwide. If, as Tip O'Neill famously said, all politics is local, perhaps we can now say that all lobbying is global.

About Public Affairs – A Global Perspective
In our highly politicized world, public affairs plays a more important role than ever not just in how each nation functions and internally but how it is presented and interacts on the global stage. With an extensive introduction to lobbying and public affairs in individual countries, this book covers the main changes in recent years including the regulatory environment; nature of the sector/main players, consultants vs in-house; key challenges for the sector; issues of political importance; key practices, main avenues of political engagement (institutional) and methods (briefings, meetings, media) as well as providing compelling conclusions on the likely changes and future direction of public affairs.
