From the Back Cover:

This text is a well-balanced survey of ethics presented through applications to the criminal justice system.

It presents the three major ethical schools of thought—virtue ethics, formalism, and utilitarianism—in a clear and cogent way so readers can apply them and understand their strengths and limitations. It also captures the philosophical underpinnings of modern ethics without overwhelming readers.

“Ethics Checkup” and “Critical Thinking” exercises in every chapter help readers apply concepts to the world around them.
