Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In a fresh approach to stakeholder analysis, Bowie and Werhane articulately and persuasively hone in on the unique ethical obligations that guide manager-level decision-making. Management Ethics delineates the competing pressures on managers and provides them not only with insights but actual processes for ensuring accountability for their decisions.” Laura Hartman, DePaul University

“Management Ethics is up-to-date, wide-ranging, and extremely well-informed. Written from a Kantian stakeholder perspective, it presents an excellent account of the fundamentals of management ethics.” George Brenkert, Georgetown University

“Bowie and Werhane combine their diverse experiences and knowledge to provide an excellent primer in management ethics. They present the basics of managers’ ethics and corporate social responsibility in a clear and compelling narrative chock-full of cogent examples and core concepts.” Thomas Dunfee, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
