Davey, Joseph Dillon; Davey, Linda DuBois
This book is about conscience development in the college community.

The book also describes how to use these examples to promote critical thinking skills. The chapters are: (1) "Law as a Guide to Justice"; (2) "The Logic of the Law"; (3) "Change in the Law"; (4) "The Constitution"; (5) "The Bill of Rights"; (6) "Crime"; (7) "Poverty"; (8) "Race"; and (9) "Drugs." An epilogue discusses "Has the Moral Reasoning of College Students Changed?" Each chapter lists some suggested readings. (SLD)
