Summary
    The anthology The Integrity of American Governmental Institutions: The Role of Ethics in Public Service combines general theories, functions, and practices of government with specific examples of issues confronting government today. The readings prompt students to think critically about the challenges public servants face in their work.

    Students learn about the role of ethics and character in the presidency, how negative ads are used in campaigns, and how campaign finance changed after the Citizens United case. They consider race in politics, the role of committees in governing, and opinions written by Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts. Review questions which can be used in-class or as prompts for written assignments, follow each reading. Website resources have been provided for students who want to learn more about specific topics.

    The Integrity of American Governmental Institutions moves beyond familiar titles and roles to help students recognize elected officials and members of the judiciary as public servants who are regularly required to engage with hotly contested issues. The book is well-suited to classes in political science, law and society, and world politics.

    José de Arimatéia da Cruz holds a Ph.D. in political science from Miami University in Ohio. He teaches international relations and comparative politics at Armstrong State University in Georgia and is an adjunct research professor at the United States Army War College.
    Becky da Cruz is a former attorney who now serves as a faculty member at Armstrong State University, where she is a member of the Criminal Justice, Social, and Political Science Department. Dr. da Cruz earned her Ph.D. at Capella University in Minneapolis and her J.D. from the University of Dayton School of Law.
