Ethics for Public Managers


Gortner focuses on public administration ethics theory and how it applies to the lives of managers operating in the middle ranges of public bureaucracy. Through a general review of the literature on public administration ethics and a comparison of that literature to the real-life experiences of civil service managers, he categorizes the literature and measures its "relevance" to the thought processes, decisions, and actions of individuals within a bureaucracy. Gortner's effort to balance theory and practice will interest scholars and practitioners of public administration alike.
