This book is designed to show readers how ethics can constrain improper behavior. To demonstrate the relationship of ethics to good government, the author presents high profile case studies that were selected for their notoriety and their ability to connect the reader to fundamental ethical questions. Themes of public interest, natural law, and rule of law provide a framework for the case studies, which include torture (Abu Ghraib), impeachment (Clinton), competence (FEMA), electoral violation (DeLay), and historical corruption (machine politics). The chapters discuss concepts that help to define responsible behavior in terms of behavior in elections, honesty and competence, and international law.

Review:

"Koven's skillful use of case studies brings a fresh approach to the well-worn topic of responsibility and public officials. His positions are carefully researched and well-argued." - John A. Rohr, Virginia Polytechnic Institute "Koven has crafted an instant classic that provides large amounts of scholarly depth for researchers, and everyday relevance for those who make policy decisions or think and write about policymaking. This is a most timely book... but it also is timeless, in that it deals with the pressing need for responsible governance that has been articulated in many earlier generations and that will continue into the foreseeable future. A must-read for anyone concerned about how government should work." - Mack C. Shelley, II, Iowa State"
