Book Description

August 28, 2008 0195369106 978-0195369106
Business Ethics and Ethical Business is a brief yet remarkably comprehensive introduction to the thought-provoking field of business ethics. The text is organized into three parts that cover the role of business in society, the ethics of internal management, and the challenges of international business. It introduces the standards essential in business ethics, explores a wide range of issues using concrete examples, and provides analytical tools for guiding ethical decisions in the real world.


* Includes an appendix containing sixteen short case scenarios modeled on ethical problems in business; these studies are keyed to relevant chapters and designed to stimulate class discussion and provide material for essay assignments
* Introduces central ethical theories including Aristotle's virtue ethics, Kant's rule-based ethics, Mill's utilitarianism, and Ross's common-sense pluralism
* Introduces a set of principles comprising a decision framework for conducting business ethically
* Examines the two main competing views of business in a democratic society--the free market view and the corporate social responsibility approach
* Considers both large companies and small, family-owned businesses
* Includes a glossary of many key terms in business ethics

Business Ethics and Ethical Business is ideal for undergraduate or MBA courses, as either a standalone text or a companion to an anthology or selected case studies. Every chapter is self-contained, so the text can be used in whole or in part and in long or short courses.

Editorial Reviews


"Business Ethics and Ethical Business is philosophically sophisticated and yet written in admirably clear prose. This is a virtuoso performance by one of the most distinguished scholars in the field of business ethics."--Edwin M. Hartman, Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University

"As we have come to expect of Audi's work, the reasoning and style contained in Business Ethics and Ethical Business has the 'triple-barrels' of richness, insightfulness, and clarity."--Mitchell R. Haney, University of North Florida

"This elegant and concise introduction to business ethics examines business as a practice that sits at the nexus of democratic values, free market values, and individual and community conceptions of the good life."--Joanne B. Ciulla, University of Richmond

"Audi cuts away the fluff and gives his reader the essentials without unnecessary embellishment."--Peter Madsen, Carnegie Mellon University

The chapters are an easy read and take little time. There is no fluff, and most chapters are 7 to 10 pages, which make it easy to find the info for needed assignments. Easily portable compared to most bloated textbooks.

I bought a book that said was in good condition but it really wasnt. When i got the book it fell apart into 3 pieces. I shouldve bought from someone else. You guys should give right description about your books how it is falling apart and has plenty penmarks inside, instead of saying in very good condition few marks... I am really disappointed!
