The revision of this highly regarded,authoritative text continues to build upon the strengths of past editions,including thorough,in-depth coverage and strong,comprehensive cases. Both authors are respected scholars; the senior author is considered one of the pioneers in the field of business,government,and society,and how these changes affect the attitudes,duties,and decisions of managers,particularly those in larger corporations. In the eighth edition three new shorter chapter-opening cases have been added and six of the 22 chapter-ending cases are new. Case studies retained from the previous edition are updated to reflect the most current information available. All chapters are brought up to date and several are substantially restructured. International dimensions of the subject matter have been given much greater prominence.
