About this title


Delineating implications for administrative ethics from other fields such as sociology, psychology, and philosophy, this state-of-the-art reference/text provides a comprehensive review of administrative ethics in the public sector - tracing the treatment of ethics in public administration literature from the late nineteenth century to the present.
Detailing the context within which contemporary ethics training has developed, the Handbook of Administrative Ethics recommends useful research techniques for generating various categories of knowledge concerning administrative ethics . . . examines the effectiveness of ethics training and legal and organizational devices for encouraging desired conduct . . . creates a taxonomy for administrative ethics using the categories of modern philosophy . . . discusses the origins of the term "public interest" . . . analyzes deontological and teleological approaches to administrative ethics oriented toward duty to principle . . . focuses on the ethical dimensions of organizational culture and the conflicts between culture and ethical conduct . . . investigates topics of particular relevance to the political and social contexts of public administration in the United States . . . and more.
Written by over 25 leading scholars in public administration ethics, the Handbook of Administrative Ethics is a valuable reference for public administrators, political scientists, and scholars in other fields concerned with professional ethics such as biomedical and legal ethics, and an essential text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in departments of public administration, political science, government, and social work.
