This issue of Ethics and the Military Profession features three articles rather than one. Each article provides a view that focuses on a particular aspect of the Non-Toleration Clause. Although attempts to take all of this Clause in at once are beyond the scope of an article, this collection of three distinct statements should sketch some of the dimensions of that whole. The article, The Non-Toleration Clause--A Chance for Misperception, attacks the logic of those who claim that they should not try to judge the action of others. The article, An Objection to the Stool Pigeon Objection, removes the shadow of a charge sometimes directed at this institution in the light of close examination. Values and the Non-Toleration Clause, offers a schema to explain how the Clause assists the cadets as they learn and adopt the values of the institution. In the final portion of this issue, reviews on Helen Rogans Mixed Company Women in the Modern Army.
