Whiteford and Trotter provide current and prospective researchers and practitioners with a solid foundation of essential ethical concepts and issues, including respect for persons, beneficence, and justice. They take into account national and international discussions and practice of ethics. The authors also explore ethical problems common among anthropologists.
Ethical challenges often arise from the unanticipated consequences of a research design, from conflicts among stakeholders or from the clash of two positive ethical principleswhen adherence to one of the principles may violate another. Functioning as both a capstone and a learning tool, the last chapter presents a real-life ethical dilemma and introduces readers to a detailed problem-solving guide.
End-of-chapter questions and five ethical dilemma cases prompt analysis and discussion. The latest printing incorporates excerpts from the 2012 AAA Code of Ethics.
