"The book is both a theoretical framework and an operations manual to guide the ethical conduct of public office holders."

- Patrick Boyer Literary Review of Canada

"This book makes some sensible suggestions for improving standards in Canadian public life."

- William Christian Record

"Their defence is well crafted...and deserves a look from political theorists wondering how to address students' cynicism or to exemplify democratic principles in action. The authors' careful consideration of difficult challenges to specific applications and abuses of these principles and duties regularly imbues them with practical and subtle meaning in a way that theoretical elaboration would not.
Wide use of this book in undergraudate politics courses, and by rookie and veteran Canadian legislators alike, is justified on its substantial merits alone."

- David Laycock Canadian Journal of Political Science

"This extended survey of political faux pas is good fun... and will serve political science students well as an essential primer."

- Paul Wells Quill and Quire

"In this timely and well-written book, the authors argue that honest in political life is not impossible. This valuable book is intended mainly for a university audience, bu politicians, public servants, and citizens in general could profit from reading it as well."

- Paul Thomas Canadian Book Review Annual

"The authors seem to believe that honesty in politics is possible... recommended reading."

- R. J. Love Fredericton Daily Gleaner

"Honest Politics should be read by all who are interested in that sphere."

- Paul Loran Phoenix Star
