9780130851291: Criminal Justice Ethics

For a variety of courses on applied ethics in departments of Philosophy, Sociology, or Criminal Justice.

A collection of essays which examine how personal and moral beliefs influence the relationship between criminal justice and social justice. The book is not a proscriptive manifesto of what criminal justice ethics should be, but an invitation for students to debate what criminal justice ethics are, while stressing the importance of individual ethics and morality. An introduction on ethical reasoning and ethics pedagogy is followed by sections on the nature of criminal guilt, law making, law enforcement, judicial processing, punishment and emerging issues (technology and media).

From the Back Cover:

This new anthology provides an engaging collection of essays that address fundamental questions of social justice within the criminal justice profession. Following an introductory section on ethical reasoning are sections on the nature of criminal guilt, law making, law enforcement, judicial processing, punishment, and emerging issues of the media and technology. Selected readings present opposing views, which allow students to explore diverse ethical positions. Actual court opinions and hypothetical cases contribute to students' understanding of ethical issues facing criminal justice professionals today.

Criminal Justice Ethics offers both instructors and students:

  • Lively ethics debates on a broad range of criminal justice issues
  • Introductory articles on contemporary ethics and ethical thinking
  • Actual and hypothetical case studies which compare legal and ethical reasoning
  • Internet resources incorporated into each section and an appendix
  • Professional ethics focus with additional resources on career explorations

Criminal Justice Ethics blends the disciplines of philosophy and criminal justice, and invites students to become involved in ethical controversies through a combination of sound ethical pedagogy, lively debates, and compelling case studies.
