Product description


This is profoundly important and adroitly written book in business ethics and corporate governance. Bob and Gretchen Tricker offer an invaluable map for readers to navigate the critical issues surrounding the subject. This book is full of reflective insights, vivid case illustrations, and well-informed analyses. This is a particularly important reading in the field of business because the authors have taken an unconventional approach by arguing that business ethics should be fundamental to business and not merely voluntary efforts to decorate the annual reports. And that makes this book an essential reading for both seasoned and aspiring leaders.
Professor Alan Kai Ming AU, Associate Dean and Professor, Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration, The Open University of Hong Kong

Business Ethics: A Stakeholder, Governance and Risk approach is a mine of timely and relevant thinking with a hands-on approach on practical problems that current organizations face. Prompted by the numerous and infamous ethical breakdowns of the last two decades, the book highlights the thin red line holding together business ethics, governance, accountability and finance. The authors’ endeavour represents a beginning not an end and is the base from which all with an interest in governance and ethics of corporations should start. I wish I had encountered this book earlier.
Amedeo Pugliese, Lecturer, School of Accountancy, QUT Business School, Queensland University of Technology, Australia

The Trickers have written a masterpiece and I am very happy with the textbook, as a lecturer. And I highly recommend this book to any graduate program in business.
Professor Gregg Li, Adjunct Professor of Corporate Governance, Hong Kong Baptist University

This text aims to integrate ethics into everyday business, which is an imperative for business students and practitioners alike. The book is replete with relevant exercises and dilemmas to make the reader think critically about ethical issues. It is very contemporary in covering recent events, such as the Libor and the latest insider trading scandals.
Dr Eleanor O'Higgins, University College, Dublin, Quinn Business School

This authoritative work demonstrates how business decision making is invariably a moral exercise. Ethics are integral to the way business is conducted, not an afterthought. The book illustrates dramatically the ethical risks inherent in all forms of business activity including strategy, operations and reporting. The work navigates through the many ethical dilemmas facing managers, and convincingly directs the reader to the safe harbour of a sound ethical framework. This book will be indispensible both to business students and practicing managers.
Professor Thomas Clarke, Director, Centre for Corporate Governance, UTS Sydney
