Overview

BUSINESS AND SOCIETY employs a stakeholder management framework. This framework emphasizes a business's social, legal, political, and ethical responsibilities to both external and internal groups that have a stake, or interest, in that business. It is a fundamental goal of the course that students really get that responsible business decision makers strive to balance and protect the interests of various stakeholders-investors, employees, community, environment, etc. An emphasis is also placed on the fact that one needs to understand that business situations will continually arise that will truly test ones values and ethics. BUSINESS AND SOCIETY not only exposes students to diverse and important stakeholder and ethical frameworks for considering and protecting stakeholder interests, through its use of cases and other real-world applications, this text enhances the precision with which students think about and practice ethical decision making. Opportunities to apply stakeholder and ethical systems to specific business problems abound, and questions are provided with all cases and applications to focus student reasoning, ensuring excellent preparation for class discussions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is a solid Business & Society text; issue coverage is complete, and it's flexible enough to serve both a quarter and a semester course. The explicit inclusion of ethics will recommend its adoption by most business schools, particularly in these troublesome times. For me, the big pluses are its thoughtful and thought-provoking treatment grounded in solid research.

Cases are excellent, and the general treatment of ethics is more thorough than most texts. The writing style is excellent.

Booknews
Presenting research and case histories, this textbook focuses on the relationships between businesses and the society in which they operate, and in particular the state, consumers, the environment, communities, employees, and owners. Ethical and strategic aspects of technology, globalization, regulation, the influence of business in forming government policy, consumer information, product quality and safety, environmentalism, worker's rights, discrimination, and corporate governance are discussed. The authors teach at the University of Georgia. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
