1 Review
This first serious empirical work to study administrative ethics refutes the arguments that administrative ethics cannot be studied in an empirical manner and that empirical analysis can deal only with the trivial issues in administrative ethics. Within a theoretical perspective, the authors carefully qualify their findings and take great care not to overgeneralize results. Specific areas addressed include understanding public corruption, ethics as control, and ethics as administration and policy.

As we seen in day to day adminstration at Central and State Govts.of India no ethics followed by the Politicians, and Bureaucrats. Every field corruption is playing vital role among them, owing to which public standard of living in social, economical , education is not reaching to the door steps of the poverty classes, and medical facilities at Govt.Hospitals are totally neglected by the both the
Govts. The Corporate Hospitals, are raising every where in Urban, Metropolitan cities and rendering services to the rich people only, a poor people cannot afford such facilities and they are keeping away from the medical facilities to be provided which is most primary responsibility of the Govts., since because poorers are being used for elections to get their votes largely, compared to rich people who are not required to caste their vote, eventhough they are getting all facilities from the Govt.Hence in an un-avoidable circumstances and other things they are becoming against the Govt. So all should re-think to buildup admn.ethics, poltical ethics, and change of peoples how best their poor sector can be improved by making laws and also in implementation of benefits to reach at their door steps.

Page 16 - Nye (1967, 419) defines official corruption as "behavior which deviates from the formal duties of a public role because of private-regarding (personal, close family, private clique) pecuniary or status gains; or violates rules against the exercise of certain types of private-regarding influence".
Page 16 - A corrupt act violates responsibility towards at least one system of public or civil order and is in fact incompatible with (destructive of) any such system. A system of public or civic order exalts common interest over special interest; violations of the common interest for special advantage are corrupt.41 It may be either administrative, business, social, judicial or political.
Page ix - Roundtable, the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration, and the International Personnel Management Association.
