'This interesting, thought-provoking book makes a valuable contribution to the field of business ethics. It is a book that scholars, tertiary students, business practitioners and the critical-thinking layperson alike will find rewarding. Given increasing pressures from citizens and governments on businesses to be socially responsible, the authors offer salient, pertinent challenges to each of us in terms of our own ethical stance.' - June Buchanan, Marketing Academic, Faculty of Business and Economics, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.
