Written by two leading voices in the global debate on business ethics and corporate responsibility, this book has set new standards since since its first edition and is still by far the best book on business ethics available on the market. Simply a must read. * Guido Palazzo, University of Lausanne * I am already a fan; I think it's the best around. Efforts have been made to update [the new edition] fully and I like the deployment of ethical dilemmas. * John Batemman, University of Sussex *
