Description

For courses in Ethics in Criminal Justice.

Every major issue, problem, scandal, and crime in the criminal justice field has ethics at its core. This book presents the three major ethical schools of thought (virtue, formalism, and utilitarianism) in a clear way that emphasizes how ethics impacts individual decision-making. Extensive critical-thinking exercises, Ethics in the Movies features and Ethics in Books features use popular events and media to raise ethical questions and help students develop ethical reasoning skills. Separate chapters are devoted to law, police, courts, corrections, and liability so students see the direct connection between ethics and specific aspects of the criminal justice system.
