"Many questions about ethical responsibilities abound and the reader will find these high-quality contributions to be thought-provoking and useful. Gross, Katz and Ruby's introduction amplifies the ethical qualms occasioned by the 'sins' committed in the electronic darkroom and the uses of cameras, scanners and other digital technologies to manipulate and alter images. I expect that the interest in the ethical discourse can add to the ongoing development of visual studies, with the valuable contribution of this recommended volume."--Visual Studies
"The anthology reaches into disciplines and perspectives well beyond American Media Criticism to find fresh ways of considering dilemmas in visual presentations. In addition, the writers often took the challenge of looking beyond the bend to contemplate ethical issues likely to be on their plates tomorrow. In doing so, they have done a consistently excellent job of articulating the principles behind practice today. There is great consistency throughout this volume as the writers balance the pragmatics of corporate ownership with the conceptual question of what should be done instead of what can be done in the creation and exploitation of an image."--Journal of Mass Media Ethics

The styles tend to change, but most of them are quite... complicated: they all use high english and complex words that might be replaced by much more simple words (a common human like me sometimes got lost during the readings). In the first chapter for example, I couldn't stop noticing how the author of it mentioned 5-6 different words to describe one subject or idea.
This was repeated through all the chapter in fact.
So... if you want this book you better be used to JRR Tolkien's heavy style of saturated descriptions and embrace it with love... otherwise avoid it.
