520 2  "Drawing on literature from several disciplines, this 
       enlightening book examines the history of whistleblower 
       laws throughout the world and provides an analytical 
       structure for the most common debates about the nature of 
       such laws and their potential successes and failures. The 
       author explores the relationship between the actions of 
       whistleblowers and the character of laws protecting them, 
       as well as their administration and enforcement. The book 
       considers the role of civil society groups in the 
       successes of whistleblower laws and how current 
       controversies reflect issues attached to these laws over 
       half a century. This study contains perspectives from 
       which successes and failures can be evaluated and will 
       appeal to policy makers, scholars, whistleblower advocacy 
       and other civil society groups, as well as anyone with a 
       general interest in the subject"--|cProvided by publisher
