Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book, more than any other media ethics textbook currently available, treats students as the intellectually curious, philosophically aware, and ethically motivated individuals that we hope them to be. As one brings one’s own wisdom to the reading with the understanding that there is more to learn, this is one of those rare books that has the potential to keep on giving to professors and to students." (Deni Elliott 2009-12-23)

If you are getting this book for Texas Tech's Media Ethics class w/ Stoker, be warned that a couple of the chapters are NOT in this book. Get the blue, newer one if you're worried about that. I didn't realize it until after I'd already gotten the book.

I got a 'B' in the class, but my quiz grades suffered.
