It promises to become one of the field's classic collections." W. Michael Hoffman, Center for Business Ethics, Bentley College "The pace of change and the unexpected challenges that managers now confront every day make it all the more important that they have a clear sense of business ethics to guide their decision making. This book provides that handrail and shows how good business and good ethics go hand in hand." John Quelch, London Business School "This is a valuable resource with thoughtful essays by the best minds in business ethics today. The organization of the book by ethical theories, business diciplines, and contemporary ethical issues makes it particularly useful as a reference book for academics and practitioners alike."
