* Now published by Berrett-Koehler, this is the latest edition of a popular business ethics textbook, thoroughly updated throughout

* Includes twenty-three case studies-fourteen new to this edition, with three others updated-as well as new research and new exercises

* Includes access to a complete suite of ancillary materials for instructors: teaching guides, test banks, and PowerPoint presentations

Joseph Weiss's Business Ethics is a pragmatic, hands-on guide to determining right and wrong in the business world. To be socially responsible and ethical, Weiss maintains, businesses must acknowledge the impact their decisions can have on the world beyond their walls. He integrates a stakeholder perspective with an issues-oriented approach so students look at how a business's actions affect not just share price and profit but the well-being of employees, customers, suppliers, the local community, the larger society, other nations, and the environment.

A wealth of contemporary examples makes the book relevant and compelling. Weiss includes twenty-three customized cases that immerse students directly in recent business ethics dilemmas and ask them to consider how they would resolve them. Fourteen of these cases are new to this edition, touching on issues such as cyberbullying, fracking, neuromarketing, and for-profit education and involving institutions such as Goldman Sachs, Google, Kaiser Permanente, Walmart, Ford, and Facebook.

Several chapters now feature a unique Point/CountPoint exercise that challenges students to argue both sides of an ethical issue. The text has been updated throughout with the latest research, and as with previous editions, the sixth edition features a complete set of ancillary materials for instructors: teaching guides, test banks, and PowerPoint presentations.

Why now? The 2008 economic collapse raised ethical issues that have yet to be fully resolved, and every week seems to bring news of yet more dubious behavior by yet another respected institution. There could not be a better time for a fully updated edition of Weiss's classic, accessible blend of theory and practice.
