Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is very tightly argued and rich in provocative and imaginative arguments." Teaching Philosophy

"Kleinig's new survey of the ethics of policing is an excellent introduction to the subject. it provides a very useful survey of a variety of topics--presenting careful analyses, considering (but not getting booged down in) recent contributions of other scholars, and offering sensible solutions. It does exactly what a book of this kind should do in a way that is neither oversimplified nor too complex for the lay reader." Ethics

Book Description

Offering an in-depth analysis of the ethical values that police should uphold, this book considers their authority in broad terms. It also tackles accountability, the use of force, deceptive stratagems, corruption, and the tension between personal values and communal concerns.

Format: Hardcover
THIS BOOK COVERS ALL THE GRAY AREAS OF POLICING. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMENDED FOR ANYONE WHO IS A MEMBER OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY BECAUSE IT APPLIES SPECIFICALLY TO MEMBERS OF PATROL AND THOSE INVOLVED IN UNDERCOVER OPERATIONS.

Ordered the "new" book for sharply discounted price and was pleasantly surprised it was NEW. Tough read the first few chapters but improves as you go. Seems to have a British tone
