Both these books derive, in part at least, from the "ethics subcommittee" of the Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare, of which Senator Douglas was chairman and Professor Graham a consultant Senator Douglas' common sense observations were first delivered as the Godkin Lectures at Harvard. Professor Graham's more extensive study attempts, with a good deal of penetration, to relate the problem of ethical conditions in politics and government to the underlying standards of the nation as a whole.
