Criminal justice ethics, Vol. 31, no. 3, December 2012, 318 p. : tabl.
Special issue devoted to ethical issues arising from the activities, roles, and status of private military and security companies. In recent years these issues have grown in prominence globally. Matters of law, ethics, the scope of stale power, the powers of corporate entities, and the complex intersection of law, authority, accountability, and the scope of discretion are all involved. The articles in this issue are revised and elaborated versions of papers originally presented at a conference on that topic at John Jay College Criminal Justice in October 2011.
