Review:

This is a solid Business & Society text; issue coverage is complete, and it's flexible enough to serve both a quarter and a semester course. The explicit inclusion of ethics will recommend its adoption by most business schools, particularly in these troublesome times. For me, the big pluses are its thoughtful and thought-provoking treatment grounded in solid research.

Cases are excellent, and the general treatment of ethics is more thorough than most texts. The writing style is excellent.
