Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Extremely useful. I have already adopted it for the cutting edge case studies presented and the detailed and informative indexes that catalogue all the case studies in several ways. The text is very user-friendly for the community college student who is attempting to gain some competence in ethical reasoning." -- Gaye Walton-Price, Contra Costa College --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book has exceeded all my expectations. I'm a retired USMC Officer with over 30+ years of service and my second career is with the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training as a senior instructor. My responsibilities include leadership and ethics training of police officers from first-line to Chief. The book "Morality Plays" fit my needs perfectly. Ethics like leadership cannot be taught, but it can be learned. The book has generated philosophical questions and has caused people to search within themselves and understand their core values, thus make better ethical decisions. Well done Jessica.

I bought this book for possible use in an Ethics class. I won't be using it.

The cases are not relevant to ethical issues my students would face. Without relevance they don't offer much value.

The cases didn't include sufficient information for the reader to analyze and discuss. Students would be led to make assumptions about the cases because of this lack of information, which means they would be discussing different versions of the case.

I sensed some bias from the author.

More About the Author

Bioethicist Jessica Pierce, Ph.D., is the author of the book The Last Walk: Reflections on Our Pets at the Ends of Their Lives (University of Chicago, 2012). Some of the questions she explores are: Do animals have death awareness? Why is euthanasia almost always considered the compassionate end point for our animals, but not for our human companions? Is there ever a good reason to euthanize a healthy dog? Why do people often grieve more deeply for their pets than they do for people? What is animal hospice?

Her other books include Wild Justice: The Moral Lives of Animals, Morality Play, Contemporary Bioethics: A Reader with Cases and The Ethics of Environmentally Responsible Health Care. Visit Jessica's website for more details: www.jessicapierce.net.
