'The second edition of Ann Cunliffe's excellent book is an even sharper introduction to the critical study of management. It is again a thought-provoking and insightful take on the ethical issues facing managers in modern organizations. An important, intelligent yet readable book that students will love' -- John Hassard
'Ann Cunliffe brings new life to the most thorny dilemmas of management. Beautifully matched to the historical moment, the second edition tackles complex philosophical ideas and ethical questions in prose even more accessible and practical. Its pivotal trio of managerial practice - relationship, reflection, and responsibility - will inspire managers, students and critics alike. A thin book that delivers a deep read, guiding us all to think and communicate in fresh ways bound to vastly improve organizational life.' -- Karen Lee Ashcraft, Professor of Organizational Communication
