Book Description

1 Mar 1996 007707856X 978-0077078560
"Essentials of Business Ethics" provides an introduction to business ethics. It surveys the current literature and core theories with applications to a number of contemporary issues in the field, including corporate responsibility, equal opportunities legislation, the ethics of advertising, and environmental issues. Throughout the text coverage of legal issues is provided where appropriate. The text examines the values upon which business is based with a strong emphasis upon notions of justice within a business context. Although the authors argue that business can never be value-free, no attempt is made to persuade the reader of the superiority of any particular system. Combining theory and practical examples, attention is also given to writers who have studied values 'scientifically' and claim that allegiance to values is measurable. Specific attention is paid to the ethical issues associated with globalization (for example, the conflict of values in international transactions).

More About the Author

Having taught at various British universities throughout my career, I became Head of Religious Studies at the University of Wolverhampton, UK - a post which I held until 2008. I am currently Honorary Research Fellow in Contemporary Religion at the University of Birmingham. Much of my writing derives from teaching students about religion over the past years.

My books are principally about New Religious Movements, Christianity and Interfaith Dialogue. Love, Sex and Marriage is a dialogue on these themes with a Jewish and a Muslim author (Dan Cohn-Sherbok and Dawoud El-Alami). We have just finished writing a follow-up - Why Can't They Get Along? - which explores wider issues on which Jews, Christians and Muslims are divided.

Writings on Christianity include Christianity Today (2010) and Christians in the Twenty-first Century (2012), co-authored with Margaret Z. Wilkins. The latter aims to portray the Christian faith as it is practised, rather than to treat it historically or theologically, as most textbooks do.

The Study of Religion: An Introduction to Key Ideas and Methods, co-authored with Ron Geaves, first appeared in 2007, and a new updated edition was published in 2013. As the title implies, it aims to introduce students to the ways in which religion has been studied in the past, and how scholars approach it today.

My most recent publication on new religions is an anthology co-edited with Benjamin E. Zeller, The Bloomsbury Companion to New Religious Movements, in which some 30 leading scholars in the field address a variety of state-of-the-art issues on the topic. This will be available early in 2014.

I am particularly interested in Jehovah's Witnesses. Strangely, there is little academic material written on them. My Historical Dictionary of Jehovah's Witnesses was published in 2008 (later reprinted as the A-Z of Jehovah's Witnesses, and I am currently working on Jehovah's Witnesses: Continuity and Change, which should appear in 2014.

3.0 out of 5 stars Essentials = "Basics" 21 May 2004
Format:Paperback
I am a undergraduate degree level student (Business Studies) and used this book for the module "Business Ethics".
"Essentials of Business Ethics" is a relatively simple book and did not provide sufficient detail or depth for my final year module. It is no doubt a good book to use as a resource, and those chasing a 1st may wish to add this one to their armory. It was recommended to me for "extra" reading not as a main text, which was how I used it. It is a good resource but I recommed any student asks their tutor which book is best for them, this one may suffice, but for me it did not. Athough it was as difficult module, I struggled in the exam and suggest any student at my level considers something more detailed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Essentials = "Basics" 21 May 2004
Format:Paperback
I am a Business Studies Student and brought this book for my module "Business Ethics".
"Essentials of Business Ethics" is a good book, but it really is the "Basics" of Business Ethics. I struggled in the exam and although it was hard, I feel the book did not go into enough detail. It was recommended to me as a book for "extra" reading and not really as a main text. Apparently "Corporate Responsibility. A text book." (Cannon, T.) is a good one, but don't take my word for it. For lesser courses and modules this book will do just fine, but for a final year module in which 100% of the mark was attributed to the exam it didn't quite cut it. It's by no means a long book and is less than half the size of some of my other text books. A usuful resource but for a degree module check with your module leader as to which is best.
