Not just another media ethics book, this engaging and unconventional text breaks away from the usual practice of presenting the ethical theories of well-known philosophers in watered-down form. Instead, the contributors select a poem, movie, song, speech, or other cultural document, analyze it for implied or explicit ethical lessons, and then apply the lessons to a specific case that involved controversial media conduct.
