Editorial Reviews

Combines writings by Clarence Walton with essays from a May 1997 symposium held at The American College in Bryn Mawr, PA and dedicated to Walton. Focuses on Walton's contributions to the field of business ethics--particularly his belief that a manager should possess four virtues: temperance, fortitude, prudence, and justice. Topics include teaching and public service, business ethics and corporate responsibility, Walton as a case study of a moral manager, and an examination of Walton's appraisal of American culture.
