"In this volume, editor Sandra Parham (Archivist, Barbara Jordan Archives) has selected speeches that give readers an insight into Jordan's philosophy on ethics, diversity, and government at a time when our citizens have serious questions about all three.

In fact, her emphasis on ethics in government could be summed up in these words: "Just because it's legal, doesn't make it right!""--BOOK JACKET
