AUTHORS: Carroll/Buchholtz - ©2012
Gain a better understanding of the importance of business ethics, sustainability and stakeholder management from a strong managerial perspective with Carroll/Buchholtz’s BUSINESS AND SOCIETY: ETHICS, SUSTAINABILITY, AND STAKEHOLDER MANAGEMENT, 8E. You see, first-hand, how the most successful business decision makers balance and protect the interests of various stakeholders, including investors, employees, the community, and the environment -- particularly as business recovers from a perilous financial period. You examine the social, legal, political, and ethical responsibilities of a business to all external and internal groups that have a stake, or interest, in that business. The authors effectively balance strong coverage of ethics and the stakeholder model with a new focus on one of business’s most recent, urgent mandates: sustainability. This edition’s new sustainability theme clearly reflects the connection between business and the natural, social, and financial environments, illustrating how all three must be maintained in balance to sustain current and future generations. You gain a thorough understanding of today’s individual organizational and societal topics with this edition’s new business cases, "Ethics in Practice" cases, and most recent business examples. This edition’s strong emphasis on ethics and sustainability ensures your ongoing success as you prepare for business situations that will test your values and require focused reasoning skills in today’s workplace.
