This comprehensive collection presents a case-method approach to teaching business ethics. It contains a wide range of individual, managerial, and corporate cases, many with an international perspective. All cases have been classroom-tested at the Harvard Business School; most have been developed in the field rather than in the library. 27 new cases (of the total 59 cases) cover such topics as labor-management trust, product liability, foreign child labor, business e-ethics, the oil industry and climate control, and more. A new appendix, "Corporate Self-Assessment and Improvement," provides a corporate self-assessment tool for senior management and boards of directors aimed at increasing ethical awareness and avoiding potential threats to an organization’s reputation. The second Appendix, "Bridging East and West in Management Ethics," has been revised and updated to discuss certain basic similarities between Asian and Western ethical ideals through the Caux Round Table Principles of Business Conduct.
