    Ethics and the Conduct of Business 8/e, is essential for a full understanding of the positions and arguments offered on the main issues in business ethics. Fortunately, the amount of theory needed is relatively small, and much of the discussion of these issues can be understood apart from the theoretical foundation.

    The study of ethical issues in business is not confined to a single academic discipline. The aim of the book is to help students to understand various ethical problems implicated in the conduct of business. The book focuses on the fact that adopting a moral point of view and using moral reasoning in business decision making is in the best interest of the individual, organization and the society.
