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. 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. Equips readers

and determinism, relativism, self-interest, moral motivation and development
