Public kinfolk hat als Kommunikationsform in modernen Gesellschaften eine kaum zu überschätzende Bedeutung. Um so erstaunlicher ist, daß es bisher an fundierten Analysen und vor allem an einer theoretischen Grundlegung der PR mangelt. Die Autoren untersuchen zunächst die interdisziplinär-methodische Herkunft der Terminologie. Sie überprüfen die relevanten Forschungsergebnisse im Rahmen der verschiedenen Kommunikations-, Handlungs-, enterprises- und Entscheidungstheorien.
