In this penetrating and thoughtful addition to the growing national debate over public and private morality, Bok looks at lying and deception in government, medicine, law, academia, journalism, in the family, and between friends in the light of history, psychology and ethical theory.
"A rare achievement. By bringing ethical theory and the perplexities of moral decision into confrontation, Sissela Bok sharpens and illuminates both."--Paul A. Freund
