'All the Rest is Advertising': The Public Relations Industry and the Decline of Trust provides a detailed account of the emergence of the British PR industry following its early development in the United States. Chronicling the creation of PR firms by former politicians, the report reveals how PR has turned parliamentary democracy into a branch of business relations. It portrays the revolving door between the political and the corporate, and the deep inroads that business and its agenda of corporate growth have made into politics. The PR industry is revealed as one of the midwives of this dynamic, pro-corporate relationship between the government and business.
