MEDIA REVIEWS

"Ethics of Media features a wealth of case studies that will appeal to anyone interested in the study of contemporary media praxis. It can pride itself on having brought together some excellent contributions by authors who are acknowledged experts in the field, and offers a discussion of issues that directly relate to the current state of media ecology, including the ethics of blogging, Wikileaks, war reporting and the crisis in press standards. I have little doubt that the book will establish itself as a reference work on media ethics." - Lieve Gies, University of Leicester, UK

"Ethics of Media offers a broad and yet remarkably deep account of what ethics means in the realm of enduring and emerging forms of public and social communication. Empirically rich and normatively provocative, it stands as a corrective to the abundant ambivalence about the prospects for responsible and accountable media." -Theodore L. Glasser, Stanford University, USA

"This collection is a timely series of contributions from a range of philosophers and communications scholars seeking to engage with a set of questions about what it would mean to think of an ethics of media, as distinct from what seems to be the increasingly outdated legalism of 'media ethics'." - Patrick Weir, LSE Review

"Ethics of Media raises compelling questions about media, with plenty of ideas on what the answers might be... the editors did a superb job of mixing issues and views. Questions on ethics are endless, and so are the answers. This book helps sort through the complexities." - Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly, 2015
