If you are doing ethics this book is easily explained. A well. Worth read. Understandable if you have no previous background of ethics.

Horrible text book 5 Mar 2008
By fws - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are required to buy this text book for a class I feel sorry for you. I had to buy it for a stakeholder course and my initial reaction to the book was good. The first few chapters are a great introduction to general ethical and stakeholder theory. However, after those chapters the authors go on a binge with what can only be classified as overly descriptive accounts on different stakeholder groups. If you have previously had any courses involving stakeholder theory these chapters bring nothing new. This is surprising as the authors have chosen to dedicate 40+ pages per chapter and try to relate to the presumptive student reader by including boxes with descriptions of movies dealing with related topics called 'Ethics on Screen'. Maybe if the movies had been included on a dvd it would have worked, but even if you have seen the respective movies these 'Ethics on Screen' boxes seem out of place.

In case of a book like this one I would like to recommend to just read the conclusions, but these are short considering the lenght of the chapters and equally useless.

If you are required to get this book for a course I strongly recommend that you find a good deal as this is not a book you would want to overspend on.
A great book for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Business Ethics and CSR 30 Mar 2011
By Dr. M. May Seitanidi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The third edition (2010) of Business Ethics by Crane and Matten is a must have book, even for those who have the first and second editions. Many sections of the book have been re-written making the ethical theory sections and ethical issues clearer by explaining in small steps what and why is important and for whom. The new figures, ethical dilemmas of recent cases within a truly international context make the book the best Business Ethics text book you can use for your international students.

An excellent resource is also available from the Oxford University Press book companion with power point slides and other material for the instructors.
