Summary

Business Ethics is a lively and engaging textbook that tackles one of the most pressing issues facing business today: how to be a good corporate citizen in a complex multiple stakeholder world. It covers the foundations of business ethics and applies these concepts to each of the corporation's major stakeholders. Written from a truly international perspective, it explains the ethical challenges faced by business in different parts of the globe, and provides the tools and concepts necessary to understand and deal with ethical problems effectively wherever you are in the world. It is the only text on the market that fully considers the implications of three major ethical challenges facing business: corporate citizenship, globalization, and sustainability.

This third edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and includes new content on climate change, water issues, financial markets, private equity, and global religions. It offers a wealth of new cases and vignettes as well as updates of favourites from previous editions, including features on BAE, Diageo, McDonald's, Nestle, Rio Tinto, and Siemens. Among the unique learning features included in the book are "Ethics on Screen" boxes that describe recent movies involving business ethics issues, and "Ethics online" --a new feature that provides cutting edge insight into the use of social media and online tools for understanding and participating in business ethics. Further links and web resources are also provided on the book's dedicated Online Resource Center.
