Editorial Reviews

Booknews
With chapters focusing on specific intersections of law and ethics as they impact business, this textbook provides an introduction and overview of the subject. Chapters discuss loyalty and whistle-blowing, privacy, affirmative action and sexual harassment, workplace safety, environmental sustainability, advertising, product liability, and intellectual property. Halbert teaches business and management at Temple University. Ingulli teaches at Richard Stockton College. Both are lawyers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"What I do NOT like about the other textbooks is that they are more "red-eye" type telling about the ethical concern and not requiring critical thinking on the part of the student to determine what is "ethical and moral" in the legal context. For example, all of the other texts tend to show "employment-at-will" with the boss being able to fire the employee with or without cause as being unethical. However, in your text, you present both sides of the legal doctrine with the employer's side being presented also. This is something that the students have never even thought about. Because of the format of this Textbook, I am able to engage the students in a lot of critical thinking on subjects of legal and ethical interest to all of them. For instance, most students have never heard the other side to things like Affirmative Action. This causes the students to begin thinking not only in the classroom but in their current and future jobs. Because of this, my course in Business Ethics with your textbook is often rated one of the most interesting and most useful course students have taken in their college life. I also get calls often from former students that have run into an ethical/legal issue in their current work that we have covered. They want to refresh their knowledge of what they learned. Therefore, your current textbook is having an impact on students in real-life situations."

"I found the Instructor's Manual invaluable. The introductory tips helped me "break the ice" more effectively, and the sources and background (especially to the cases) saved me many, many hours of additional work while making me better prepared to anticipate and answer questions about the course content."
