Overview

The original edition of this accessible and interdisciplinary textbook was the first to consider the ethical issues of digital media from a global perspective, introducing ethical theories from multiple cultures.

This second edition has been thoroughly updated to cover current research and scholarship, and recent developments and technological changes. It also benefits from extensively updated case-studies and pedagogical material, including examples of “watershed” events such as privacy policy developments on Facebook and Google+ in relation to ongoing changes in privacy law in the US, the EU, and Asia.

New for the second edition is a section on “citizen journalism” and its implications for traditional journalistic ethics. With a significantly updated section on the “ethical toolkit,” this book also introduces students to prevailing ethical theories and illustrates how they are applied to central issues such as privacy, copyright, pornography and violence, and the ethics of cross-cultural communication online.

Digital Media Ethics is student- and classroom-friendly: each topic and theory is interwoven throughout the volume with detailed sets of questions, additional resources, and suggestions for further research and writing. Together, these enable readers to foster careful reflection upon, writing about, and discussion of these issues and their possible resolutions.

“Charles Ess's revised edition of Digital Media Ethics is a thorough and approachable introduction to an area of ethics that is increasingly important as the information age accelerates into a new era of globalization. Ess’s sensitivity to cultural awareness and difference makes this an important contribution: I highly recommend it for the classroom and generally curious readers alike.”
Anthony Beavers, University of Evansville, and president of the International Association for Computing and Philosophy

"I highly recommend this book for school and university courses on Information Ethics around the world. Clearly written, it opens vistas for intercultural dialogue on ethical issues of the cyberworld."
Rafael Capurro, International Center for Information Ethics

Ess combines philosophical sophistication with clarity of exposition, addressing a wide range of topics. Thoroughly updated with many up-to-the-minute examples, it is a wonderful resource for teachers, students, and anyone who cares about ethical issues brought about by the digital age."
