This book, intended as a core text for a basic course on Media Ethics, takes a distinctive approach to the study of ethics. Focusing on one historic episode per chapter, the book is divided into three parts that represent the three major functions of the media within democratic societies: news, persuasion, and entertainment. This sets the book apart from many ethics books, which are generally located within the journalistic paradigm. Blending classic and contemporary cases, these three very well known authors discuss media ethics with a thorough grounding in theory, particularly communitarian theory, an antidote to the more widely discussed libertarian theory. Reviewers noted a distinctly international feeling to the book, considered a plus, as well as good coverage of contemporary topics like blogging and entertainment.

Through reports nationwide, including the Wall Street Journal and TV news, Americans are discovering Faith Fowler’s ideas for transforming lives in Detroit’s Cass Corridor. Known for her deep faith and creative ideas, Faith serves as one of the city’s leading pastors and as a nonprofit entrepreneur. As a co-founder of a wide array of Cass startups, Faith and her Cass community are turning one of the nation’s most impoverished urban centers into a gold mine of talent and resources. Now, Faith Fowler shares dozens of inspiring true stories of men and women who found new hope and were able to join in building a healthier community through Cass. Mitch Albom says: “The world waits for people like Faith Fowler. … This memoir, like the author herself, is funny, poignant, moving, beautifully staged and oozing with a commitment to a simple yet profound idea: that other people are worth the trouble.” From turning trash heaps of old tires into a stylish line of sandals to a host of other startup businesses, Faith’s work at Cass already has drawn nationwide attention. Headlines have chronicled her innovative ideas and her infectious belief that each and every life is valuable, despite the ravages of homelessness, addiction and violence. In this book, she shares the best of this inspiring community through stories of lives renewed and transformed. This is the first book published by Faith Fowler’s latest entrepreneurial venture. Cass Community Publishing House is the first interfaith publishing house established in the city of Detroit in more than two centuries—since Father Gabriel Richard, a Catholic priest and co-founder of the University of Michigan, hauled the first printing press into Detroit and invited his Presbyterian friend the Rev. John Monteith to publish with him. Like Richard and Monteith before her, Faith Fowler’s work is one reason that Detroit is recognized as a center of hope for those who believe peace is possible in our ever-more-diverse world. Mitch Albom urges: “Everyone, religious or not, should read these pages.”

This text focuses student-learning on the key communication competencies recommended by the National Communication Association. With applied examples and a vibrant and engaging design, this text covers all the expected topics in an introductory course (foundations of communication, interpersonal communication, small group communication, and public speaking - plus a special appendix on interviewing). Scenarios begin each chapter with a problem to which students can relate and then solve as they learn about the concepts discussed in each chapter. A concentrated focus on careers in communication, highlighted in a two-page spread near the end of each chapter, brings home the relevance of communication outside the classroom and helps students learn more about how studying communication can help them throughout their lives. Additional emphasis on topics such as ethics, culture, gender, and technology is found throughout the text.

The intent of this volume is to present this maturation, to reflect the vibrant state of ethics theorizing and to illuminate promising pathways for future research.
