"Governments throughout the world understand the benefits of whistleblowing and have increasingly introduced legislation to encourage the disclosure of information about wrongdoing and to protect whistleblowers. Unfortunately, many people remain unaware of these developments and need to be educated accordingly. Dr Peter Bowden s DIY handbook, which focuses in particular on the US, Australia and the UK, has the simple but ambitious objective of strengthening ethical practices across the institutions and organisations of our societies . Although his target audience includes politicians, senior administrators, NGO s and legal practitioners, this easily digestible work is also likely to be of interest to teachers, managers and whistleblowers themselves."
"Peter Bowden s "In the Public Interest" is not just a how-to book; it provides a concerted argument for why such a how-to book is necessary and not just for whistleblowers. Bowden drives home the message that we cannot put off thinking seriously about whistleblowing until lightning strikes and we are personally confronted with workplace wrongdoing. Our decisions now as employers, colleagues, citizens, and above all as educators decisively structure the knowledge, reception and protection that later whistleblowers will need. If we yearn for a more ethical world, then Bowden s work shows us how and why we must work to protect those who will speak out in the public interest."
