    A New, Innovative Text Challenges Students to Think Critically About the Criminal Justice System

    Posted by Lindsay White on May 6, 2014 10:19:59 AM

    Criminal justice is centrally concerned with what people deserve—with the rights a defendant can properly claim when charged with a crime, with the punishment a judge should impose for wrongdoing, and with the scope of discretion officials may exercise when enforcing the law. Dimensions of Justice: Ethical Issues in the Administration of Criminal Law will publish August 1st and is the only textbook of its kind that addresses these questions of justice from an institutional, rather than personal, perspective. Thought Experiments, “Justice in Context” sections that consider the real-life applications of concepts under review, and clearly presented learning objectives create a strong foundation in key concepts, pertinent vocabulary, and critical-thinking and reasoning skills. Students will be introduced to moral reasoning and the underpinnings of philosophical approaches to justice, including readings from critical philosophers such as Plato, Augustine, Locke, and Rawls. Accessible but rigorous, Dimensions of Justice: Ethical Issues in the Administration of Criminal Law provides a unique and innovative approach that will challenge students to develop a new analytical framework for thinking about the criminal justice system.
