    Legacy of Wisdom: Great Thinkers and Journalism introduces the reader to the ideas of more than 30 great philosophers, writers, and intellectuals - from Confucius and Plato, to Machiavelli and Kant, to Simone de Beauvoir and Sissela Bok - and the ways their ethical systems apply to journalism and journalists today.

    Power — the Key to Press Freedom: A Four-Tiered Social Model.David Gordon & John C. Merrill - 1988 - Journal of Mass Media Ethics 3 (1):38 – 49.
