Within the field of political philosophy, the role of states, governments, and institutions has dominated research.
This has led to a dearth of literature that examines what individuals-e.g., voters, lobbyists, and politicians-ought (or ought not) to do.
Ethics in Politics: The Rights and Obligations of Individual Political Agents meets this need, providing a timely discussion of normative questions concerning political agents and the systems in which they act.
The book contains eighteen original chapters by leading scholars which cover a range of topics including irrational voting, bribery, partisanship, and political lying.
Ethics in Politics is a unique and accessible resource for students, researchers, and all interested readers, and sheds light on important but underexplored issues in ethics and political philosophy.
