About the Author

Sue Curry Jansen is Professor of Media and Communication at Muhlenberg College.


"Stealth Communications offers us critical resources to apprehend the central role of public relations in transforming the conditions for an informed citizenry. Rich with case studies, historical reinterpretations, and contemporary analysis, this book should be required reading for students of media and democratic communication." - Melissa Aronczyk, Rutgers University

"Now a multibillion-dollar global industry, the dark art of public relations has never exercised a more pervasive influence. Through judicious examples set in a careful historical framework, Jansen documents how a hidden torrent of managed publicity sweeps through our public sphere. Those who care about democratic decision-making will find Stealth Communications to be essential reading." - Dan Schiller, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
