Honest Politics provides a framework for distinguishing right from wrong in politics and supplies some ideas for ensuring that ethical decision-making can be enforced.

Greene and Shugarman look at the ethical issues raised by conflicts of interest, patronage, party financing, lobbyists and "dirty hands." They discuss a variety of high-profile cases, including Bill Vander Zalm and Fantasy Gardens, Ralph Klein and Multi-Corp, and Kim Campbell and the Pearson Airport deal.
