About this title

Synopsis:

Elected officials and candidates for office find their personal lives and professional careers falling under increasingly intense scrutiny by a public that demands accountability from its representatives. This anthology examines the role of ethics in the political arena. Chapters include: Is Unethical Behavior in Politics a Serious Problem? Is the Legislator-Lobbyist Relationship Improper? Is Scrutiny of Politicans' Character and Conduct Warranted? Should Legal Measures Address Ethics in Politics?

Review:

"This anthology includes essays that initially appeared in periodicals, newspapers, books, government documents, and public and private organizational publications...A balanced presentation for highly controversial views, the selections differ in style and polish; some are carefully reasoned, and others are emotionally charged. Three major sections explore the dimensions of the problem, its causes, and possible remedies. Pulling no punches, this title covers its subjects well. Useful for research, for reports, and for debates."
-- School Library Journal (November 2001) (School Library Journal 20011101)

"I have almost every series Greenhaven Press has published and love them all..These titles will be a gret resource for current events, history, and speech classes and debate teams. Highly Recommended."
--Library Media Connection (August/September 2004) (Library Media Connection 20040901)

"This wide-ranging entry in the Current Controversies series gives readers information for reports as well as for making personal choices. The writing is more intellectual than impassioned, and supporting evidence usually comes from respected sources that young readers will likely recognize and trust. Rich materials for many curricular disciplines."
-- Booklist (May 2002) (Booklist 20020501)
