Editorial Reviews


"...This fine volume presents the problems and offers worthwhile and insightful suggestions. Highly recommended." CHOICE May 2005

Book Description

In this important collection of essays Dennis Thompson argues for a more robust conception of responsibility in public life than prevails in contemporary democracies. He suggests that we should stop thinking so much about public ethics in terms of individual vices (such as selfishness or sexual misconduct) and start thinking about it more in terms of institutional vices (such as abuse of power and lack of accountability).
