From the Publisher
"This book does not claim to offer any simple solutions; rather, it is a succinct—yet exhaustive—attempt to introduce readers to the crucial issues from a historical perspective. . . . The editors' lucid introductions provide clarification. In an age of mass media characterized by a propensity for stooping to serve the lowest common denominator—given expression in such pseudojournalism as The National Enquirer and A Current Affair-- it is refreshing to rediscover the field's noble roots."
"A valuable collection of readings that will put anyone in touch with thinking on ethics from John Milton to Karl Marx to James Gordon Bennett to A.J. Liebling. The richness of these sources is what gives the book its value. . . . The book is rich in seminal ideas, and is ideal for the student of ethics. And doesn't that include all of us?"
"An extremely helpful map of the journalism ethics territory."
"[S]hould be a worthwhile addition to the library of most media ethics professors."
