Reviews
"In this first book devoted entirely to the subject of political communication ethics, there are 10 chapters, covering political culture, campaigns, media, advertising, ghostwriting, discourse, politicians, and new technologies. These diverse chapters are unified by the central theme that "we cannot depend upon the politicians, their handlers or even the media . . . to correct real or perceived problems of ethics in American politics. The task is ours." If such a task begins with a thorough understanding of the problem, then with this book it is well begun. All the essays, especially those by Gronbeck, Kaid, and Woodward, combine insightful analysis with conscientious reviews of the relevant literature. The volume has impressive breadth, including chapters on political culture and postmodern approach, as well as material more familiar to political scientists. For libraries with collections in politics, history, and communication studies, or for anyone interested in politics and the processes of political communication. It is accessible to undergraduates and community college students, and still offers insights that will be useful to scholars."-Choice
