Ethics and Criminal Justice: An Introduction

John Kleinig

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    This book examines the main ethical questions that confront the criminal justice system ' legislature, law enforcement, courts, and corrections ' and those who work within that system, especially police officers, prosecutors, defense lawyers, judges, juries, and prison officers. John Kleinig sets the issues in the context of a liberal democratic society and its ethical and legislative underpinnings, and illustrates them with a wide and international range of real-life case studies. Topics covered include discretion, capital punishment, terrorism, restorative justice, and reentry. Kleinig's discussion is both philosophically acute and grounded in institutional realities, and will enable students to engage productively with the ethical questions which they encounter both now and in the future ' whether as criminal justice professionals or as reflective citizens.
