Editorial Reviews

The Bookwatch - Midwest Book Review
"Ethics in the Workplace: Tools and Tactics for Organizational Transformation is for any middle-management business executive who seeks an interdisciplinary text considering ethical change agents and their work - and for any college level course on the subject. It uses ethical research results from social science, psychology, social psychology and more and provides modern case studies based on recent events. Plenty of room here for in-depth classroom discussion and debate."
Gian Luca Casali
"The challenge with this kind of work is to strike a reasonable balance in representing the complexity of the phenomenon. Johnson seems to do this well. The book is also useful as an introduction to the field for undergraduate students."
