Ethics, Business and Society
Managing Responsibly

First Edition
Edited by:

Business Ethics

July 2010 | 244 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd

This compilation analyzes the differences between the concepts of 'social responsibility' and 'business ethics', which are often erroneously interpreted to be the same. It explains that social responsibility is a characteristic but just one of the many aspects of the much wider concept of business ethics. The collection includes contributions from experts from diverse fields such as industry, academia, and non-governmental organizations, who present the theoretical underpinning of the concepts, along with real-life case studies dealing with the varied, hands-on experiences of leaders from different industries.

This book will be an insightful read for professionals in the field of business and management.
