Review:


'Domenec Mele has succeeded in writing a book that is thought provoking, especially in times of corporate scandals and criticism of the economic system. His argument for a human-centred approach highlights the crucial role of people and their values, virtues and principles. The book combines a comprehensive review of theories on business ethics with illustrative cases, making it a valuable source for both educational settings and practice.' - Andre Nijhof, Associate professor in Business Ethics, Nyenrode Business University, The Netherlands 
 
'A serious and comprehensive look at Business Ethics, moving effortlessly from an historical perspective through to more contemporary issues. The large and up-to-date case studies are excellent for tutorial debate, and provide a strong international flavour to this very important topic which is highly relevant to both final year undergraduates and masters level students.' - Martyn Kendrick, Deputy Head, Department of Strategy and Management, Leicester Business School, De Montfort University, UK 
   
'Dominic Melé's textbook is an essential reference point for any undergraduate student in business and management who has an interest in business ethics. While covering a complex field the book is easily accessed with rich illustrations and diverse cases, it is ambitious and comprehensive in scope, but most importantly it presents a clear read throughout.' - Nikodemus Solitander, Lecturer in Corporate Social Responsibility, Hanken School of Economics, Finland 
  
'Business Ethics in Action takes a refreshing and useful approach to the study of ethical dilemmas, exploring wider and more fundamental issues in the process. It will certainly help readers approach the subject in a holistic way.' - Jas Ahmed, Director of Advanced Management Programmes, Middlesex University Business School, UK 
  
'Business Ethics in Action's human-centred approach is a breath of fresh air. The author is able to combine traditional wisdom based on a coherent view of human nature with the practical realities of contemporary ethical issues in business. In taking a practically-oriented approach, the author provides a comprehensive, reasoned framework which integrates principles, virtues and values in dealing with the variety and complexity of ethical issues in the workplace. This long awaited text will be of immense benefit to anyone who is interested in business and professional ethics.' - Surendra Arjoon, Senior Lecturer in Ethics and Decision Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, The University of the West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago 
  
'This is a thorough and comprehensive look at the subject of business ethics, which not only deals with the basic theories in an understandable way, but illustrates them with a wide selection of case studies, to make the theories relevant for today's students.' - Nick Phillips, School of Business and Enterprise, University of Cumbria, UK
