Placing an emphasis on the concepts, principles and theories that comprise ethical thought, the book demonstrates how these concepts can be used to examine ethical issues within the field. Critical thinking and reasoning skills are central, as is its discussion of metaethics and moral psychology. Case studies and illustrations provide practical examples, while sound coverage of theory emphasizes how the ethics field can inform our understanding of moral issues in criminal justice.Discusses the concepts that represent ethical thought and how they can inform our understanding of moral issues in criminal justice and guide our thoughts, choices, conduct and decisions.nbsp; Links issues in law, crime and justice to the broader study of ethics and morality and shows how sound reflection and reasoned decisions can resolve ethical dilemmas in the field.nbsp;Equips readers with critical thinking tools that can be used repeatedly with moral and ethical concerns that arise within the field.nbsp;Discusses how concepts such as free will and determinism, relativism, self-interest, moral motivation and development are critical to understanding issues and controversies in criminal justice such as lawmaking, criminal punishment, and unethical professional behavior.nbsp;Case studies highlight people and events from the world of crime, law and justice and add realism to the prose.Law enforcement professionals.
