This is the substantially revised edition of the classic book The Responsible Administrator-the book that has guided professionals and students alike as they grapple with the challenges of making ethical, responsible decisions in real world situations. This fifth edition has been adapted to reflect current thinking and includes a new introduction as well as updated information on coping with demands for accountability, cases and examples, research references, and an examination of current issues relevant to administrative ethics. In addition, the design approach has been developed further in both the introduction and the new concluding chapter.
