About the Author

D. Don Welch was Associate Dean and Professor of Law and Religion at Vanderbilt University Law School from 1984 to 2012. His book grows out of a career divided between law and ethics, especially in the experiences of 28 years of teaching law students, followed by service on the staff of St. Augustine's Chapel at Vanderbilt.


"Welch's superb book should be required reading for politicians, policy makers, and the public. Smart and sensible, Welch dials down the rhetoric and turns up the intellect in helping us think through the most important moral concerns in public policy."
-Mark Rom, Georgetown University

"The ethical and legal implications of public administration are explained clearly and accessibly by D. Don Welch. His writing style generates a lively interplay between philosophical theories and classic case studies that are relevant to government and policy-making."
-Christine A. James, Valdosta State University "Deploying a framework of five basic principles, D. Don Welch provides a lucid, insightful, humane, and practical approach to public policy. He recognizes that the formulation, analysis, and implementation of good policies aren't easy and in fact that some choices may involve competition among elemental values. But using his framework, makers of policy (indeed, all conscientious citizens) may choose more reflectively, deliberately, transparently, and intelligently. In an era of dysfunctional government, Welch's approach is a breath of fresh air."
-Mark E. Brandon, Vanderbilt University "This book may be useful as a supplement, however. Readers interested in law and ethics may find this book of interest as well. Recommended for law and/or ethics graduate students and scholars."
-- M. L. Godwin, University of La Verne
