Summary

"Ethics and the Conduct of Business, Fifth Edition, frames each issue and examines the arguments on each side with rigor and clarity. Numerous short cases and real-life examples increase understanding and stimulate classroom discussion. The revised and updated Fifth Edition retains the familiar structure of previous editions, although the material on ethical theory, formerly in three chapters, has been reorganized and reduced to two chapters. Of the forty-five cases in the book, eight are new. The chapter on marketing has been extensively rewritten."--BOOK JACKET.
