Good news : social ethics and the press by Clifford G Christians( Book )
16 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 633 libraries worldwide
Mass media ethics and the classical liberal ideal of the autonomous individual are historically linked and professionally dominant--yet the authors of this work feel this is intrinsically flawed. They show how recent research in philosophy and social science--together with a longer tradition in theological inquiry--insist that community, mutuality, and relationship are fundamental to a full concept of personhood. The authors argue that "persons-in-community" provides a more defensible grounding for journalists' professional moral decision-making in crucial areas such as truthtelling

Key concepts in critical cultural studies by Linda Steiner( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 268 libraries worldwide
An essential reassessment of the central themes of critical cultural studies This volume brings together sixteen essays on key and intersecting topics in critical cultural studies from major scholars in the field. Taking into account the vicissitudes of political, social, and cultural issues, the contributors engage deeply with the evolving understanding of critical concepts such as history, community, culture, identity, politics, ethics, globalization, and technology. The essays address the extent to which these concepts have been useful to scholars, policy makers, and citizens, as well as the ways they must be rethought and reconsidered if they are to continue to be viable. Each essay considers what is known and understood about these concepts. The essays give particular attention to how relevant ideas, themes, and terms were developed, elaborated, and deployed in the work of James W. Carey, the "founding father" of cultural studies in the United States. The contributors map how these important concepts, including Carey's own work with them, have evolved over time and how these concepts intersect. The result is a coherent volume that redefines the still-emerging field of critical cultural studies
Ethics for public communication : defining moments in media history by Clifford G Christians( Book )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 199 libraries worldwide
"Focusing on one historic episode per chapter, Ethics for Public Communication is divided into three parts, each dedicated to one of the three major functions of the media within democratic societies: news, persuasion, and entertainment. Authors Clifford Christians, Mark Fackler, and John Ferré, three trusted scholars in the field, discuss media ethics from a communicative perspective, setting the book apart from other texts in the market that simply combine journalism with libertarian theory. Classic media ethics cases, like the publication of Rachel Carson's 1962 book Silent Spring, are covered in tandem with such contemporary cases as the creation of Al-Jazeera English and the controversy surrounding Ice-T's protest song, "Cop Killer.""--Publisher's website

Ethics & evil in the public sphere : media, universal values & global development : essays in honor of Clifford G. Christians ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 119 libraries worldwide
The authors in this book share three convictions. First, whatever religious or humanistic foundation we start from, the end result of our communictive efforts should reflect a genuine love for humankind. Second, all human beings, and the social and cultural creations of their hands, reflect values for both good and ill. Those reflecting the best must be encouraged and legitimized, while those that reflect the unfortunate tendencies of people to castigate and condemn the other must be discouraged. What people say matters. What they do as journalists, broadcasters, filmakers, advertisers, and teachers, matter even more because professional communicators have access to information and audiences who can be encouraged to do either - ethical behavior or evil. The authors have all been inspired by Clifford Christians and his efforts in creating an environment in communication scholarship where ethical reflections could thrive
