Summary "This book is about values and principles in human communication." "The authors explore various kinds of values - cultural, commercial, social and political, aesthetic, religious, and the philosophy of value - but they all would agree that human dignity and fundamental human rights must be kept inviolate in any value system and should be reflected in the ways we communicate."--BOOK JACKET
