Editorial Reviews

Review


"Donald Palmer has developed a provocative argument about the inevitability of organizational wrongdoing. What we have here is a critical, inclusive, sociological analysis that takes the perspective of embedded wrongdoers...[The book] could easily be a basic text for organizational studies courses of any kind. Why? Basic positions are presented and compared. Ethics are not compartmentalized. Applications are not oversimplified. Readers understand more clearly why organizational participants may develop a cynical outlook." --Administrative Science Quarterly


"Palmer's book is both important and timely... [and his] exploration of these questions covers a wide range of disciplines -- sociology, psychology, social psychology, criminology, political science, economics, and philosophy -- giving his book an impressive breadth. He provides thorough and careful descriptions and illustrations of eight specific explanations of organizational wrongdoing... Anyone with an interest in corporate scandals will find these case studies rich and compelling." --Contemporary Sociology


"...Palmer provides an overview of the underlying theories, drawing on a range of disciplines - sociology, economics, psychology, ethics and management - and provides examples showing how each explanation can be applied... the book is very useful for anyone interested in organizations and ethics. With his fine review of relevant theories and by providing a wealth of examples, Palmer is able to demonstrate that organizational wrongdoing is indeed 'normal', as his title suggests." --Work Employment Society Review

Prof. Palmer is obviously very passionate about this subject. I have enjoyed this technical book more than most technical business books. It's informative, well researched, and certainly worth the time for any business professional to learn and understand. Corporate ethics are no longer optional. This is a good book to get you oriented with the complexity that are Waterworld presents business professionals.
