Editorial Reviews

Media Ethics
...it is a volume that both raises ideas and settles them.
Booknews
Presents a new political philosophy to help explain concepts that define the limits of expression within the state, and offers excerpts from key documents and essays in support. Focus is on the reason for controls placed on the media, and on events and laws as they shape the role of the state in controlling the freedom of expression. In developing this philosophy, the history of the media, media law, and political philosophy are explored only as they relate to the philosophy. Material progresses from Biblical times through the American colonies to modern times, with discussion of the American Revolution, radio and film censorship, and Communist and Socialist theories of the media. Author information is not given. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
