This essential business ethics text touches on many themes important to future leaders of business. Broad in its scope, the book presents the business aspects of philosophy, law, politics, government policy, and education. The material is designed to heighten the reader's sensitivity to the moral domain existing in business.

As the culture of American "big business" has clouded the view of society towards business professionals, Ethics, Law, and Business realizes a need to prepare business students for leadership roles in the communities, as well as in business. This text discusses the basics of free speech, violence, affirmative action, and public education.

Filling an important gap, this textbook presents eminently readable information on several business topics. In the past, there was not one or even any combination of books that provided the necessary coverage in a usable format. This book is appropriate for a semester course on business ethics in any graduate or undergraduate program.

This textbook will be accompanied by an Instructor's Manual written by Wines and Nancy L. Bodie, Boise State University. It will feature PowerPoint slides, discussion problems, test items, and teaching suggestions.

Ethically Speaking

The author has developed a well-organized volume. His focus and approach have significant relevance to current scholarship and pedagogy in the field. There is a pedagogical sensitivity to the instructional value of providing historical background to chapter concerns, anchoring treatment of issues of personalities and concrete cases, and allowing the narrative interpretation of events to make sense of --without resolving--controversial topics.

Joseph A. Petrick
Director, Institute for Business Integrity, Wright State University

The focus on morality, the limits of the law, moral development, and psychology to explain why people behave differently, some badly and others morally, is refreshing indeed.

Ely Weitz
Department of Labor Studies, Tel Aviv University, Israel

I like the breadth of coverage and the interdisciplinary approach.
