Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Ethical Ambition moved me first to tears and then to action. Derrick Bell writes with passion and beauty-rarely the gift of one so scholarly. This new work is treasure I've been waiting for.” —Essence

“Derrick Bell's Ethical Ambition is a concise, beautifully written guide to the true good life.” —James McBride, author of The Color of Water and Miracle at St. Anna

“Bell's book is timely ... [and] his solutions to our malaise are both obvious and profound. Ethical saviors do not often come in the shape of 72-year old men, but Derrick Bell is not a regular sort of guy.” —CNN Money

“Bell is the ultimate teacher, a mentor to us all.” —Anna Deavere Smith

“Bell's book eloquently updates the ethical recipe for the age of the corporate rat race.” —Baltimore Herald
