Description - Moral Judgment by James Q. Wilson

In Moral Judgment, James Q. Wilson demonstrates how our judicial system has compromised its obligation to discriminate between right and wrong. Citing highly publicized verdicts, he makes an erudite case for re-examining the ethical drift of contemporary jurisprudence. Today's headlines he claims, are proof that our judicial system relentlessly subjects itself to forces that limit its capacity to resolve even the gravest moral issues: judging guilt or innocence in the most grievous capital crimes.Moral Judgment provides a much needed antidote to these ambiguities, and a triumph for one of our most admired ethical scholars.
