"This book is both accessible and deep. Through the artful use of both historic and contemporary case studies, students can explore sophisticated ethical thinking that places community and our obligation to it at the center of a professional universe. The authors demonstrate that whether the issues focus on news, strategic communication or entertainment, community is an essential ethical touchstone for developing professional excellence." --Lee Wilkins, University of Missouri; Editor, Journal of Mass Media Ethics
"I'm pleased with this new book because of its singular emphasis on communitarianism and the ways in which communitarian philosophy can and should influence media ethics decisions. The book offers a clear and distinct way of thinking about the individual versus the community and consequences for media ethics." --Jan Leach, Kent State University
"In this highly inspiring masterpiece, communitarian ethics taps into our inner humanity like never before. The authors provide powerful tools for visionary action to the educators, media professionals, and change agents of the world."--Haydar Badawi Sadig, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia; author, "Peace Communication in Sudan: Toward Infusing a New Islamic Perspective."
