Editorial Reviews


“Business ethics textbooks tend to either be too business oriented without enough reflection, or too reflective without practical relevance. This book gets the balance right, and does it consistently throughout each of the chapters. I like it because all the material seems relevant and of interest to me personally.”

“MORAL ISSUES IN BUSINESS is an introductory text in business ethics written in a clear and engaging style for an undergraduate audience. After surveying basic issues in normative ethics and American business, the text focuses on key ethical issues faced by consumers, employees, and employers in manner that encourages open debate and critical reflection.”
