Conversations on Communication Ethics is an assemblage of essays on morality and communication, which covers topics ranging from the history of communication ethics to contemporary issues of morality. Insights into persuasion and morality and into political communication, too, are included. As J. Vernon Jensen alludes in the foreword, this book  grapples "with the tension between relativistic and absolute ethics, between ends and means, between the 'is' and the 'ought' and between private and publc goods."
