Overview

Public Administration Ethics for the 21st Century lays the ethical foundations for a uniform professional code of ethics for public administrators, civil servants, and non-profit administrators in the US. Martinez synthesizes five disparate schools of ethical thought as to how public administrators can come to know the good and behave in ways that advance the values of citizenship, equity, and public interest within their respective organizations. Using case studies, he teaches American administrators how to combine the approaches of all five schools to evaluate and resolve complex ethical dilemmas within the constraints of the U.S. democratic values set.

Martinez enunciates the common ethical principles that guide public administrators in their practice within the specific ethical parameters and organizational cultures of a myriad entities at the federal, state, and local levels of government in the United States, as well as in non-profit organizations. Along the way, Martinez addresses a number of crucial issues, including personal gain, conflict of interest, transparency, democratic impartiality, hiring, hierarchical discipline, media relations, partisan pressure, appointments by elected officials, and whistle-blowing. The striking, high-profile case studies—Nathan Bedford Forrest, Adolph Eichmann, Lieutenant William Calley, and Mary Ann Wright—illustrate ethical dilemmas where, for better or worse, the individual was at odds with the organization.

What People Are Saying

William D. Richardson Odeen-Swanson Professor of Political Science Chair

"Martinez has done a masterful job of explicating five principal approaches to administrative ethics. His graceful prose treats disparate approaches succinctly, clearly and accurately. My own approach—which favors regime values—is especially well done."

William D. Richardson Odeen-Swanson Professor of Political Science Chair, Department of Political Science & Director, W. O. Farber Center The University of South Dakota

Jeffrey L. Brudney
"Administrative ethics can be a challenging topic even for those who are well-versed in the literature. Mike Martinez writes in clear prose with minimal academic jargon. His book should prove useful for readers who are seeking a clear, short, easy-to-understand explication of the debates among administrative ethicists and the various schools of thought."

Barry Bozeman

"J. Michael Martinez' book provides a remarkable framing of contemporary ethical issues in politics and public administration, uniting classical tenets of ethics with modern ethical sensibilities.ÊThis is a most welcome book, one that will be embraced by students, teachers and practitioners."
