The Business Ethics Workshop by James Brusseau engages students with contemporary examples and topical case studies. The text is also broad and clear: the important dilemmas of business ethics are presented thoroughly, and in everyday language. The result is a textbook that generates student participation, without sacrificing scope or rigor.
The examples and cases James touches on include:
> Tom’s Shoes, the social cause juggernaut
> Blogs written by young entrepreneurs in the fashion industry
> The DNA testing of baseball prospects to predict future performance
> The divergent career objectives of the rock band Nirvana’s members
> The Miami police officer working part time as a drug dealer
> The Bernie Madoff fraud
> Chippendales as a career choice
> Workplace ethics at youth trendsetter American Apparel
> An internet message board discussion of CD pirating, both the techniques and the ethics
> Eddy Lepp’s Rastafarian church and farm in California
> The College Board and the economics of the SATs
To provide maximum flexibility for instructors in the classroom, the ethical theory is concentrated in three initial chapters. The individual theoretical approaches may be covered sequentially or selectively, and at the course’s beginning, or spread throughout. The second set of chapters explores ethical issues facing employees; these include questions about resume embellishment, conflict of interest, and similar. Next, a string of chapters investigates ethical concerns confronting managers, including concerns about hiring practices and corporate culture. Finally, general issues in the field of economic ethics are pursued. They include questions about marketing and consumerism, corporate social responsibility, and wealth distribution.
For this second edition, the textual content has been substantially updated. Also, more than fifty video case studies have been distributed throughout; many featuring news reports along with sharpening refinements of the presented conflicts. Further, a robust PowerPoint deck of nearly 700 slides has been produced to carefully track the textbook. Besides clearly summarizing each section, there are slides linking to videos that raise ethical dilemmas for class discussion. The result is an interactive classroom, and also one that instructors may step into quickly and easily. With much of the preparation work already done, energy can be focused on classroom time with students. The Business Ethics Workshop contributes, in sum, to a contemporary, clear, and dynamic course.
