What People are Saying About This

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

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. This is a most welcome book, one that will be embraced by students, teachers and practitioners."

Barry Bozeman, Ph.D.
Ander Crenshaw Chair and Regents' Professor, Public Policy Dept. of Public Administration and Policy University of Georgia

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."
