It then combines these with wider discussions of frameworks that enable marketers to respond to ethical challenges, supplemented by discussions of cross-cultural and international perspectives, consumer responses and ethical consumption movements as well as shifting historical perceptions of marketing ethics.

In this fantastic addition to the field of marketing ethics Eagle and Dahl set out and explore the broad range of ethical challenges that face the marketing profession today. This book is one that I will be recommending to practitioners, academics and students as the go-to resource for an up-to-date and comprehensive review of how and why ethical considerations sit at the heart of modern marketing practice.-- Jeff French

Marketing Ethics & Society offers readers broad coverage of ethical issues in marketing practice today. The end-of-chapter mini-cases help crystalize ethical issues as they are encountered by firms.

This book and its companion website are extremely valuable informational, educational and reflective tools. The primary authors and their colleagues who have made this volume offer important questions about marketing in today's world with an emphasis on meaning, purpose, consequences and possibilities. I can easily imagine students and other readers taking what they learn from this book and helping to push the horizons of marketing - not in the sense of expanding markets but rather in ways that make the profession and the institution fully engaged with the enormous challenges facing contemporary societies, economies and the planet. -- George Cheney, University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, University of Utah, University of Waikato
