Review:

"The text is great-it is interesting to read and has a great blend of theory and practice...I think the foundation supporting research on the various theories was particularly well done.  Whistle blowing chapter was a gem and so on target"--Thomas E. Griffin, Indiana Wesleyan University

 

"The cases in the textbook are excellent in all of the chapters.  They are current and there is a nice variety of issues/subjects/parties involved in the cases."--Peter L. Stone, Spartanburg Technical College

From the Back Cover:

Comprehensive and far-reaching in scope, Ethics and the Conduct of Business, Fourth Edition, frames each issue and examines the arguments on each side with clarity and rigor. Numerous short cases and real-life examples increase understanding and stimulate classroom discussion.

The revised and updated Fourth Edition retains the familiar structure of previous editions, with a new chapter on ethics in finance and new material on international business ethics. Eight new cases have been written for this edition, bringing the total to fifty. New topics include Internet privacy, managing conflicts of interest, foreign sweatshops, hostile takeovers, and fairness in financial markets and financial services.

Special Features
  • Uses ethical theory in an easy-to-understand form as a foundation for approaching business ethics.
  • Offers fifty cases that illustrate a wide variety of issues in each chapter.
  • Covers a full range of business ethics issues in substantial depth and provides essential background for case discussion.
  • Explains the legal background of issues and relates business ethics to business law.
