Product Description


This is not a handbook for a crisis practitioner, but a rich resource for those interested in the theoretical underpinnings of communication before, during, and after a crisis. Summing Up. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and research collections." ("Choice", 1 September 2013)


“Laudable in its reach, comprehensive in its scope, and impressive in its implications, Sellnow and Seeger have made a remarkable contribution to our understanding of crisis communication as a theoretical construct.” Keith Hearit, University of Western Michigan “This book provides a successful distillation of the disparate works on crisis communication into a coherent field of study and practice. A must–read for scholars, practitioners, and students alike.” Dennis Mileti, University of Colorado “Sellnow and Seeger have added another clear, comprehensive, and useful statement on the foundations of crisis communication. Of special importance, they ground their book on the interconnections of crisis and risk which produces a powerful marriage of two robust bodies of research, theory and practice of communication and management.” Robert Heath, University of Houston

4.0 out of 5 stars Text book for my risk communications class 12 Feb 2014
By bythebay - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very thorough analysis of all communications theories in just one book. Glad it was requested for my class since it was published just last year and thus include the latest research in this field.
I'm giving it four stars because I found two factual errors:

p. 179: The Deepwater Horizon accident and subsequent oil spill occurred in 2010, not in 2009.

p. 195: The name of the NASA space shuttle that exploded few seconds after launching was the Challenger, not the Columbia. The Columbia exploded during re-entry in 2003 when seven astronauts also lost their lives.
5.0 out of 5 stars A very thoughtful overview of the topic 7 April 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a graduate student with a focus in Crisis com, this book has been exceptionally valuable to me; there's a really solid overview of the field, and it's an engaging read to boot.

Highly recommended.
