Praise for Doing the Right Thing

"Moral courage of people in power is never irrelevant. But if ever there was a time in which it was so searingly relevant it surely is today. And Tom Cooper is the perfect chronicler to bring this to our rational attention, via a series of twelve portraits of great ethical movers of history. Deeply researched, keenly reasoned, colorfully written with memorable detail, Cooper’s book will, with any luck, inspire and guide great moral leaders in our time and well into the future." —Paul Levinson, Professor of Communication and Media Studies, Fordham University

"I regard Tom Cooper as one of the world’s leading contemporary communication ethics specialists. This, his latest book, carries all the passion, theoretical richness, and original insights which I associate with his work overall." —Richard Lance Keeble, Professor of Journalism, University of Lincoln and Liverpool Hope University

"This profound book teaches moral philosophy with ingenuity. Its stunning transformation of moral philosophy into public discourse is historic. Doing the Right Thing has the promise of becoming a twenty-first century classic." —Clifford Christians, Research Professor of Communication, University of Illinois
