Summary

A well balanced survey of ethics presented through applications to the criminal justice system. The text introduces the reader to ethical decision making in the first chapter and then moves through three major ethical perspectives: virtue, formalism, and utilitarianism. The text then moves to the social and criminal justice context where ethics is discussed in separate chapters as it relates to law, police, courts, and corrections, and liability in general. The final chapter looks to the future development of ethics in everyday life.
