Spirited Dialogue: The Case for Administrative Evil: A Critique

Abstract

Spirited Dialogue is a special forum for lively exchanges on books of interest to PAR readers. In this issue, we focus attention on the award winning book, Unmasking Administrative Evil, by Guy Adams and Danny Balfour. The exchange begins with a hard-hitting and controversial critique by Mel Dubnick. The essays by Margaret Vickers and Hubert Locke praise the contribution made by Adams and Balfour and respond to Dubnick's critique. The exchange concludes with a response by Adams and Balfour.

I am indebted to Jonathan Justice, Randa Dubnick, Larry Luton, and Jonathan Inz for their comments and reactions.
