I required this textbook for my class. I got the Kindle version. Amazing textbook. I want that they created it available on the Kindle Application on Windows 8. That is what I use to read Kindle books and wasn't able to read using this application because it is only available on the desktop ver of the application or on Apple and Kindle devices.
This book is positively awful. First off, I search it ironic that a professor of ethics can force students to his book for his class. Second, the book is written by a self-important and pompous person and is overly cluttered with flowery terms. The book could be chop by half if it wasn't written in hyperbole and rife with ridiculous and unnecessary metaphors. I pity you if you're like me and forced to or rent.
This book covers a lot of problems including cultural diversity, moral character, decision making, virtues, ethical values and behavior, race, democracy, integrity, policing, perceptions, egoism, law, will, corrections, etc. It is a amazing book to read for Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement professional as well as lawyers. The book covers the works of a lot of various philosohers through the ages including The Stoics Epictetus, Epicurus, Plato, Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Saint Augustine, Kant, etc. It focuses on their writings regarding most of all the problems listed above. I think this book is a nice adjunct or supplement to traditional education and training in those relavent fields.
Rented this for my Ethics in CJ class. It’s such a well written book about ethics that I nearly bought it. The book I received was also in unbelievable condition. Usually, I obtain books shipped to me with bent corners or dents somewhere.EDIT: I want there was a glossary or more in-depth index in the back of the book. For example, some terms that are very necessary like "virtue ethics" are absent.
It did exactly what it was supposed to do. I was needed to have this book for my ethics class. It is an interesting book addressing ethical dilemmas in the field of criminal justice. If anyone is highering I am a double major in criminal justice and sociology with a concentration in social psychology, and I will be graduating from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in December.
This is the first (and probably last) time I am using this book for my undergraduate course. In theory the organization as well as subject selection in the text are amazing -it was what got me to select the book in the first place. I believe the intentions were amazing as well. However, the delivery is poor. Some chapters seem to have been written in a hurry, and without an undergraduate student in mind (very dry, list-like arguments, hardly any examples supporting sweeping statements). But, most bothersome are the numerous grammatical and spelling errors. Did they proof-read this text at all? How do you expect me to penalize student papers for the very thing their textbook is modeling? And, please, can you create sure you obtain cited authors' names spelled right? It's one thing to misspell a word, and another to butcher your own colleagues' names. Last, the instructor's manual, which contains power points and try banks for each chapter, is pathetically useless. Typos and spelling errors out the wazoo...Ridiculously simple M/C items...Power points border on the amateur, like the person who outlined chapter content had never done this before. I have to spend more time editing power points than just putting fresh ones together from scratch (which I am now doing).This is very painful for me to write. I am familiar with the editors' work, and needless to say, several of the chapter authors' scholarship. I admire most of their past contributions to the literature. But, this book, with which I unfortunately decided to substitute my previous selection has made more work for me, the exact opposite of what I was going for! At the same time it has not increased student satisfaction with a non- "sexy" course subject such as policy one bit.
I absolutely love this game. However I had to a fresh phone due to mine being replaced for insurance purposes and I was logged into my Fb and lost all my progress and the application is NOW wanting me to repay. I don't wanna have to another 9.99. If there's anyway I can obtain my android game back.
I do like the android game I have payed for it but it keeps going of and saying its not working I know its not my phone my phone is up to date and can run this android game so its annoying that I have to hold downloading it and wasting my and internet.
I created it all the method to level 60 and it keeps bumping me out right when I finish and I can not see what happens after, really annoying and frustrating. I own all of these android games and rarely do I have an problem like this, hopefully it will be fixed soon, if not then I have to uninstall
I would rate this android game a higher score but it kept erasing my game! I was all the method on level 12 and it erased everything and started me over to the beginning! And it's done it four times this latest time was the latest straw so im just going to uninstall it!
Wow, this book was so interesting!! I had never taken anything in criminal justice before, and this book was a amazing intro to go with the class. It was full of information, exposed me to a lot of various parts of the criminal justice system, and it was both up-to-date and comprehensive historically. You won't obtain too much of an in-depth look at any subject, but it's well done for an intro to criminal justice.
