Description/Abstract

This handbook bridges "explicit" treatments of ethical issues in communication and "implicit" considerations of ethics, putting under one umbrella analyses and applications that draw upon recognized ethical theories and those which, while they do not cite traditional ethical theorists, nevertheless engage important questions of power, equality, and justice. The collection has three major sections: resources for theoretical understanding and insight; application to specialties of communication study; and contemporary issues of social and economic justice. The Handbook fills an important niche in the literature of communication studies, through consolidating knowledge about the multiple relationships between communication and ethics, by systematically treating areas of application, and by "introducing" explicit and implicit examinations of communication ethics to one another.

This volume is developed to be the most comprehensive guide to the study of communication and ethics available. It is primarily intended for scholars in communication and related disciplines, who will use the Handbook as a resource for their research; instructors who will use the Handbook as a main point of reference in graduate and upper-division undergraduate courses in communication and ethics; and university libraries that want a comprehensive resource for research in the study of communication and ethics. Scholars in other fields where applied ethics holds interest will also benefit from this volume.
