That you just wanted TO SET OFF, BURN IT UP, WATCH IT GO UP IN SMOKE? Then this film is for you starring a quartet of hommies it brings the viewer into full view of being black poor and female. A tale of celebration and anguish there is no part of this film any person who falls outside of the gilded world of the male, the white and the middle class can't relate to.

Pr!: A Social History of Spin by Ewen

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding, 2 Jan 2001
Information rich and compelling Ewan gives any serious student of PR a framework into which to place the indusrty that is synonomous with the phrase 'let's do lunch.' Taking us from the social instability of the late nineteenth century, to Edward L Bernays the architect of modern day Public Relations Counsel and into the last decade of the twentieth century PR! is a book that image making professionals cannot afford to miss.
I found myself envious of the students who took Ewen's CULTure class and Ewen inspired me to deliver my counsel with integrity.
Thank you Ewen for such a remarkable text.
