Business, Ethics and Society is the text that business ethicists need now, as expectations about the role business plays in our globally-connected world evolve and grow. John Cullen is remarkably widely read, and uses a vibrant body of materials to add inimitable grounding to ethics topics. Each chapter begins with essential learning objectives and moves through lively discussions, relevant cases, and examples drawing on diverse sources such as Plato and Freud, the New Testament and the panoply of Greek gods, Black Lives Matter and #MeToo, academic writing and short fiction. Cullen has crafted a seamless connection among aspects of ethical leadership that every business student must develop and support: individual moral courage, ethical organizational culture, sustainable business practices, and dignity and inclusion for all organizational members.
