Book Description

March 15, 2013 0765632519 978-0765632517 2
This book presents cutting-edge commentaries by leading scholars that address issues of public ethics in the current period of broken politics and challenged legitimacy.

The contents of this new edition are completely new and reflect the work of many of the field's leading experts: Carole Jurkiewicz, H. George Frederickson, James Bowman, Rosemary O'Leary, Guy Adams, Danny Balfour, Terry Cooper, and many others.

Each of the chapters falls under one of five topical themes: the moral architecture of organizations, reassessing corruption in the twenty-first century, individual volition within public institutions, ethics in nonprofit organizations, and ethical issues in global contexts. Since most chapters address institutional forces that affect organizational and individual behavior, the introductory and concluding chapters demonstrate how institutional matters shape the real world of public service.

Editorial Reviews


"In 2005, H. George Frederickson and Richard Ghere argued convincingly for the central role of ethics in the study and practice of public management. I am delighted that they, joined by a distinguished list of contributors, have again returned to this theme in the Second Edition of Ethics in Public Management. In an increasingly more diffuse and complex public management world, the pivotal nature of the role of ethics, legitimacy, and trust in the public sector is of even greater importance." --Peter deLeon, University of Colorado, Denver

"This is a guidebook for how to do democracy right. By exploring moral priorities amidst the shifting sands of public service, Frederickson and Ghere provide a comprehensive, practical approach to public integrity." --Mary E. Guy, University of Colorado, Denver
