This book examines government ethics rules and their enforcement in China (as well as in three other jurisdictions for comparative insights). Empirical research methods (involving primarily semi-structured interviews) were employed to explore the dynamics of actual enforcement policies and practices in China. This book formed an analytical framework through reviewing existing theories on government ethics regulation and general regulation literature and analyzing government ethics rules in the US, the UK, and Hong Kong. Using this framework, it seeks to explore the patterns and features of government ethics rules and their enforcement in China. It shows that the inadequacy of government ethics rules per se and the deterrence-oriented criminal enforcement style of government ethics regulation are important but ignored elements of the problem of rampant corruption in China. Such analysis has generated important and practical policy implications for China's government ethics rules and their enforcement.

The book has confirmed that Librarians in Zambia are in need of a code of ethics and that there were professional values such as patron service and equal access to information among others that librarians adhere to in the absence of a code of ethics. The absence of a code of ethics affected the performance of librarians while on duty. Furthermore, the book found out that the Zambia Library Association has the capacity to develop the code of ethics but no capacity to enforce it due to the absence of library legislation which is also the major barrier to the Associations establishment of the code of ethics for its profession. Finally, it is necessary for the Library Association to develop a code of ethics for its professionals first and later lobby for library legislation.
The book distills for the first time the basics of ethics, how everybody’s conscience is born and disappears. It shows the universality of ethics as the essence of the thinking human mind, regardless of individual differences. The questions: What creates ethics? Why workers and managers usually have different ethics? How is this related to the structure of their mind? Why the U.S.A. are poor with home-grown talents? What is the difference of ethics of warriors, hierarchs, women, artists, believers and those who commit suicide? What destroys ethics and personality? Under what conditions is knowledge detrimental to ethics and to a person? Does punishment change the ethics of criminals, and what turns them into obedient executors? Can our ethics lie to us and be a false comforter? It traces how the mind of an individual generates all essences of thinking, including his/her ethics and how the social character of the individual and environment determine the ethics universality and its personality. Philosophical miniatures demonstrate the private aspects of the ethics and social life and are the attempts of metaphorical approach to a comprehension of various philosophical essences.
