Ethics in Politics : The Rights and Obligations of Individual Political Agents Hardback
Edited by Emily Crookston, David Killoren, Jonathan Trerise
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.
