Editorial Reviews

Review

“The Gray, Frieder, and Clark author team does a terrific job integrating the diverse elements that resulted in unparalleled scandal. This work is detailed, objective, definitive, and includes the latest developments. Its insightful presentation of a $1.6 trillion financial “heist” is must reading for all observers of U.S. capitalism and corporate governance.”—Dr. Stanley D. Smith, SunTrust Chair of Banking and Professor of Finance, University of Central Florida

“Corporate Scandals is the encyclopedia of corporate scandals and an essential text for Business Ethics.”—Dr. Gary Quinlivan, Dean of the Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics, and Government at Saint Vincent College

"Corporate Scandals is accurate and well-grounded both in business theory and in ethical perception of just how much a good society needs a moral foundation. It is a critique and a road-map forward combined in one wide-ranging discussion of stock-market capitalism and how to improve it.—Steve Young, Global Executive Director, The Caux Round Table

“...it speaks to the deep failure of public auditors and the accounting profession, the need to address breakdowns in corporate governance, and the potential opportunities that exist in business education. Having spent my entire professional life in these areas, I can confidently say that readers of this book will be well served.”—Sybil C. Mobley, C.P.A., Ph.D., Dean Emeritus, School of Business & Industry, Florida A & M University

"The authors pull together a great deal of material while providing important analytical insights.I found their exposure of "the great heist" scheme fascinating. Also, their presentation of the abuses perpetrated by the mutual fund industry points to the serious damage that has been done to the very foundation of our investment markets, if not our entire free-market system." (John M. Baker)

(Sanford Lakoff)

From the Inside Flap

"…the definitive and complete guide to understanding the topic of corporate scandals and their impact on the U.S. economy. Their writing style and case methodology put the reader in the middle of the action, thereby encouraging reflection on how one would behave if placed in a similar situation.

They not only detail what went wrong, but they offer provocative insights on the institutional changes necessary to restore confidence and trust in business accounting. This book should be required reading in every MBA program, and for undergraduate business majors as well." —Harvey Rosenblum, Senior Vice President and Director of Research, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and University Professor of Finance, Cox School of Business, Southern Methodist University

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Randy Orr on March 28, 2005
Format: Paperback
I am a business school graduate and have owned my own business for 12 years. I am also a former investor in mutual funds and equities. In the year 2000, my wife and I lost confidence in those investments in part due to the trickle of corporate scandals that had already begun to surface. Soon after, the trickle became a flood and I think we have still only seen the tip of the proverbial iceberg. In Corporate Scandals: The Many Faces of Greed, the authors explore the root causes of this breakdown in ethics and trust and put our current crisis in perspective by documenting and analyzing similar scandals in history. The book reads easily and yet is well researched, footnoted & indexed, making it an excellent textbook for university ethics courses. I feel that if every business school in America would incorporate this work (or a similar one) into their required ethics courses, it could help to restore integrity in American business persons and confidence in American business.

Format: Paperback
The collaboration work of Kenneth R. Gray (eminent Scholar Chair Professor of International Management, School of Business and Industry, Florida A&M University-Tallahassee), Larry A. Frieder (Eminent Scholar Chair Professor of Financial Services, School of Business and Industry, Florida A&M University-Tallahassee), and George W. Clark, Jr. (Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior and Ethics, School of Business & Industry, Florida A&M University), Corporate Scandals: The Many Faces Of Greed focuses on the nature of corporate scandals, offering the reader a brief history of business scandals, addressing issues of corporate malfeasance including fraud, regulatory laxity, and theft; governmental attempts to address corporate crime, the pervasive extent of executive impropriety and vice, recommendations for dealing with corporate illegalities in the future, and reflections on the nature and impact of corporate scandals on the business community and the general American public. Corporate Scandals should be on the reading list of corporate CEO and mandatory reading for every student in a "Business Ethics" class in every college and university Business School in the country.
