This is the only textbook in the field to combine text, cases, and articles. It is unmatched in both comprehensiveness and flexibility, with the chapters distinct enough to be taught independent of one another. With two chapters on the nature of morality and ethical theory, an entire chapter devoted to economic justice, and thorough treatment of applied issues this text is ideal for any course in business ethics.
