Revised in the aftermath of the worst global financial crisis since the Great Depression, the third edition of Honest Work: A Business Ethics Reader reflects and reinforces the editors' assertion that business ethics is primarily about the ethics of individuals. Featuring 115 brief articles and 89 real-life case studies, this unique anthology covers all aspects of business ethics under the overarching theme of the good life--what it means to students as individuals, what it means for business, and what it means for society. The book also includes an extensive chapter that explores the relationship between leadership and ethical behavior in business. Excerpts from plays, short stories, and novels enliven the text, and study and discussion questions engage students.
In the wake of the global recession, the third edition offers 18 new readings and 21 new case studies on such topics as employment in an uncertain job market, honesty and trust, the financial crisis, justice and fairness, the free market, the global village, and more. This edition also includes more discussion questions for each article and chapter.
