Review:

"The Ethics of Dissent covers a unique aspect of ethics in government, beyond what we agree are the values and obligations to law and management principles. It is concerned with the ethical dilemmas in which the bureaucracy has placed dedicated public servants and how they balance what is ethically right with conflicting rules, regulations, and administrative expectations. This, I believe, is the book's main strength: a unique view of ethical conflict and decision-making." -- Denis Hatch "The theoretical frame of The Ethics of Dissent is well done and evident throughout. This book is unique because it sheds light on a little recognized phenomenon while making clear that it is far more widespread than previously thought. Books that genuinely break new ground and do it well are very rare!" -- Guy Adams "The book's very readable style, case-study format, and Rosemary O'Leary's experience are all great strengths of The Ethics of Dissent. Students love the book." -- Alejandro Rodriguez
