Since the 1980s public affairs has evolved from being perceived as a subject that is little more than a policy oriented sub-field of public relations to a body of knowledge that is essential for understanding the public policy process and the various influences on policy and corporate discourse. Contemporary globalisation processes and changes in the understanding of governance in public, private and hybrid organisations go hand-in-hand with recognition of the essential nature of public affairs management. As the editors suggest, most businesses, government agencies, media, and NGOs have a stake, especially in democracies and emerging democracies, in cultivating a dialogue that is informed, fact driven, timely, responsive and progressive. The Sage Handbook of International Corporate and Public Affairs is an essential companion to such a dialogue, offering a rich account of the development of the field as well as its applications, and will be welcomed by students of the subject for years to come.
