From the Publisher“Dan and Elizabeth Lee have written a concise, courageous, and creative book. Richly philosophical, they dare to go beyond the philosopher’s ruminations and provide frameworks, guidance, and answers for some of today’s most difficult issues in corporate responsibility. This is one of the best books in business ethics I’ve read in years!”
– Timothy Fort, Institute for Corporate Responsibility and George Washington University School of Business
“In Human Rights and the Ethics of Globalization, the Lees have done the unthinkable: they have managed to create a clear, coherent framework for exploring and understanding one of the more complex topics of our time. By providing a philosophical foundation for delving into a phenomenon that crosses international boundaries, affects private actors and governments alike, and operates along political, social, and economic dimensions, the Lees have produced a major contribution, which will be appreciated by scholars and lay readers alike. The seamless transition between theory and practical case studies makes the book a truly enjoyable reading experience.”
– Georgie Geraghty, Lecturer, University of Chicago Law School
"Daniel Lee (Augustana College) and Elizabeth Lee (assistant federal public defender, Tucson, Arizona), a father/daughter team, have written a fascinating scholarly book that is drawn from years of experience in teaching business ethics and law, and human rights work.... Each chapter is well written in a clear and thoughtful way. This reviewer found the book to be a breath of fresh air in the often muddled and acrimonious debate over human rights and globalization. This book is an excellent read for those who want a balanced, well-thought-out argument on the linkages between human rights and globalization. An excellent starter for classroom discussion.... Essential...."
