Violence in schools has more potential to involve large numbers of students, produce injuries, disrupt instructional time, and cause property damage than any other form of youth violence. Burning Dislike is the first book to use direct observation of everyday violent interactions to explore ethnic conflict in high schools. Why do young people engage in violence while in school? What is it about ethnicity that leads to fights? Through the use of two direct observational studies conducted twenty-six years apart, Martín Sánchez-Jankowski documents the process of ethnic school violence from start to finish. In addition to shedding light on what causes this type of violence and how it progresses over time, Burning Dislike provides strategic policy suggestions to address this troubling phenomenon.

Media Ethics: Key Principles for Responsible Practice makes ethics accessible and applicable to media practice, and explains key ethical principles and their application in print and broadcast journalism, public relations, advertising, marketing, and digital media. Unlike application-oriented casebooks, this text sets forth the philosophical underpinnings of key principles and explains how each should guide responsible media behavior. Author Patrick Lee Plaisance synthesizes classical and contemporary ethics in an accessible way to help students ask the right questions and develop their critical reasoning skills, as both media consumers and media professionals of the future. The Second Edition includes new examples and case studies, expanded coverage of digital media, and two new chapters that distinguish the three major frameworks of media ethics and explore the discipline across new media platforms, including blogs, new forms of digital journalism, and social networking sites.

The drawback of most media ethics books is they examine dilemmas faced by seasoned media managers and ignore situations faced by students as they enter the workforce. Lee Ann Peck and Guy S. Reel's Media Ethics at Work helps students assemble a toolkit for dealing with ethical issues on the job. At the heart of the book are 23 cases, true stories of problems encountered by recent professionals working in news, advertising and public relations. Each story is presented as a narrative, so readers can ponder: What would I do if this happened to me? When they've finished the book, they'll feel prepared with an array of theoretical and practical approaches for thinking on their feet. Cases include Tool for Thought and Tool for Action boxes-application of a theory or professional ethics code and practical how-to tips-Thinking it Through questions, What If? scenarios, and Go Online for More.

The authors effectively challenge the myth that the public gets most of its news from television. In a wide-ranging study (with European and US data), they conclude that television is not the public's `main source' for news. The Main Source uses innovative survey techniques to show that public understanding of news information is considerably higher than previous research has found and that television news presentation could be far more effective.
