The path breaking forerunner of this book Ethics in Public Administration by the first author, refuted the notion that administrative ethics could not be studied empirically. It also set the agenda for a decade's worth of research in the theory and practice of ethics in the public enterprises and organizations.
This long-awaited, thoroughly revised, follow-up volume represents the state of the art in research on administrative ethics. It features all new contributions by many of the leading experts in the field, and addresses both the managerial and individual/moral dimensions of ethical behavior as well as new challenges to administrative ethics posed by globalization.
A detailed introduction, opening passage, and conclusion lend context to each of the book's four main sections. The text is useful for students of all graduate level courses in public sector ethics.
"Ethics in Public Management brings us into the twenty-first century with a fully new thrust after the twelve-year span that marked its original debut. The timeliness of this new version could not be more opportune, given the global dynamics that exist today."
-LOUIS C. GAWTHROP, University of Baltimore
