This collection of essays extends the conversation on communication ethics and crisis communication to offer practical wisdom for meeting the challenges of a complex and ever-changing world. In multiple contexts ranging from the intrapersonal, interpersonal, and family to the political and public, moments of crisis call us to respond from within particular standpoints that shape our understanding and our response to crisis as we grapple with contested notions of "the good" in our shared life together. With no agreed-upon set of absolutes to guide us, this moment calls us to learn from difference as we seek resources to continue the human conversation as we engage the unexpected. This collection of essays invites multiple epistemological and methodological standpoints to consider alternative ways of thinking about communication ethics and crisis.
Interesting, and at times insightful into the nature of humankind’s engagement with crisis
Communication Ethics and Crisis offers a variety of methodological approaches for viewing ethical communication and/or crisis; for that, the collection has value for scholars of either or both.
Scholars looking for practical approaches to crisis communication will find material of interest here, as will those whose interests lie in the foundational theories governing out understanding of crises both material and philosophical
Groom and Fritz’s compilation contributes material both reflective and forward-looking to larger conversations about ethics and crisis response in a postmodern world; those engaged in such conversations would do well to take a look
