Description

This eagerly awaited second edition of a highly acclaimed book on business ethics discusses the way in which individuals deal with conflicting questions of personal and professional ethics.

While retaining all the features of the first edition which made it a unique contribution to the field, this version adopts a more explicitly pragmatic and optimistic framework, while incorporating suggestions received from scholars around the world. R C Sekhar has also added many new features to make the book more accessible to students and to assist the learning process.

In addition to critically evaluating both Indian and western efforts to bring ethics into corporate governance, the book discusses:

Ethics in tax planning and in the cyber age;
Leadership ethics;
Social capital; and
Transaction cost economics and the law.

EXCERPTS FROM REVIEWS

Praise for the First Edition

A unique and lively business ethics text… fresh and delightful… Sekhar’s witty use of stories, cases will engages and enlighten business people in India and the rest of the world.
- Joanne B Ciulla, PhD-Book editor, The Journal of Business Ethics

Richly international in scope and contributes to global concern.
-Newsletter IIAS Leiden University, Netherlands

Although published in India, deserves to be on global reading list.
-Long Range Planning

Provides an innovative exposition of business ethics. Accommodating apparently conflicting ideas, it amalgamates ancient Indian wisdom and tribal lore with contemporary research.
-Business World

This book makes an important contribution through its holistic and balanced approach to the issue… Each chapter has a fair number of relevant cases-many of which are good living examples one can learn from.
-Business Standard

The book is replete with illustrations and examples to buttress the author’s views on the subject. The book is open and encourages free exchange of views and ideas. It is rooted in common sense and logic.
-Management & Change

It is a pleasure to welcome a contemporary business ethics text written by a senior professional with considerable experience in public and business administration and teaching. It is replete with Indian examples and has a distinctly Indian flavour.
