The Responsible Administrator: An Approach to Ethics for the Administrative Role

Terry L. Cooper

Book cover

“It was OK” is about right for this book. Required textbook for my January class on Ethical Issues in Public Service. In a way, I appreciate that the author tries to approach the issue from a completely analytical point of view; that is, not advocating for any particular system of values. But it’s quite dry and not engaging. I think the author would have gotten me more interested if he used real historical examples rather than made-up cases.

My Goodreads rating: 2 stars
