Today's public managers face complex ethical dilemmas, often having to weigh personal and professional values against current public opinion and legal mandates. In a climate of increasing concern over ethical conduct in governmental institutions, administrators confront new challenges in the practice of public service.
Through in-depth interviews with public executives, focus group data, philosophical inquiry, and case studies, leading experts in the field of public administration develop an overview of the prevailing ethical environment in the public sector, provide fresh approaches to thinking about government ethics, and offer new strategies for improving ethical decision making.
