"Bynum and Rogerson succeed at the difficult task of putting together a lasting collection of papers for a cutting–edge field that changes direction every other month. The collection is essential for anyone doing advanced research on the ethical standards of computer professions. At the same time, the collection stands as an outstanding teaching text for most university courses." John Snapper, Illinois Institute of Technology <!––end––>
"This book includes significant pieces from members of the global computer ethics community. Among its strengths are the worked–out case studies for ethical analysis and a nice section on computer security. It is an ideal text for those teaching professional ethics." Frances S.

collection. It covers a broad spectrum of ethics in the field and I was able to use it to help structure the class and individual lectures.
As with many collections, the papers/chapters vary in clarity and interest but overall this book serves as a good introduction to the foundations of computer and information system ethics (making the argument that the computer does add new, under-appreciated dimensions to classical ethics). The next time I teach the course I will be using an ethics textbook and Bynum's is right near the top when I consider what to adopt.
