Book Description

August 29, 2011 1577667476 978-1577667476 2
Building on the success of the popular first edition, the authors provide hypothetical criminal justice scenarios for analysis, having found in their experience as teachers that the process adds depth and dimension to the study of justice and ethics. This expanded second edition offers ten new cases addressing the intricate process of moral and ethical decision making. Focusing on both personal and social context, the authors explore true-to-life situations and encourage readers to think about the possible consequences that could result from the choices they make. The case studies provide realistic portrayals of current dilemmas in policing, courts, corrections, and juvenile justice. Political and noble cause corruption, perjury and judicial/prosecutorial misconduct, ethnic and gender prejudice, and many other social and criminal justice themes are featured. Following each scenario are thought-provoking questions to facilitate personal reflection and class discussion. Each section contains a bibliography of topical books and articles for readers interested in a more in-depth treatment of the issues.
