Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803993714, Hardcover)

Ethical Choices in Business provides a comprehensive and innovative exposition of the concepts and practice of business ethics. Using a pragmatic and humanistic approach that accommodates apparently conflicting ideas, it amalgamates ancient Indian wisdom and tribal lore with contemporary analytical thinking and research. Describing the flexible approach adopted by him as "speaking ethics," R. C. Sekhar avoids truisms that only lull the senses with comforting ideas that merely reinforce what is already known. Beginning with an inventory of ethical values nurtured by civilization, the book goes on to describe the process of ethical decision making, both at the level of the individual and the group. This is followed by a description of the contributions made by different institutions in developing ethical norms and in maintaining an ethical balance. The important functional management areas as well as specialized new topicsùsuch as, whistle-blowing, corruption, environment, and gender issuesùare covered in separate chapters. Replete with cases and real-life examples that reinforce conceptual understanding, Ethical Choices in Business is interspersed with inspiring ideas for affirmative action. Also included are two useful exercises, one on scoring oneself in ethical attitudes and a second on mind-stilling. Ethical Choices in Business will appeal to professionals and academics interested in business ethics, philosophy, management, and human resources.
