'When two of the leading thought leaders in business ethics pick the best-of-the-best thinking in an area, it's time to listen up. Crane and Matten's striking collection delivers not only the accomplishments of business ethics' past, but the promise of its future' - Thomas Donaldson, Mark O.

Winkelman Professor and Director of the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research, Wharton School, University of PennsylvaniaAs problems such as corruption, financial scandals, food safety, human rights and pollution continue to hit the headlines, business ethics are becoming increasingly central to the global economy.

In this four-volume set, two of the leading international figures in the field bring together the most critical and up-to-date academic research in business ethics as it continues to proliferate in new and exciting directions. Volume One: International Perspectives on Business Ethics, provides a comprehensive overview of business ethics in different parts of the world, acknowledging how, with the rise of countries such as Brazil, India, China and Russia as key global players, it is critical to capture the range of different ethical approaches represented by these different regions and cultures.

Volume Two: New Theoretical Directions explores areas that business ethics scholars are now engaging with, including theories of moral imagination and pragmatism, business ethics as practices and virtues, critical and postmodern perspectives and political and contractarian theories of business ethics. Volume Three: Behavioural Business Ethics, explores how ethical decisions get made.

This ranges from studies of psychological reasoning and cognitive moral development to neurobiological examinations of how the brain works when confronted with ethical dilemmas. Volume Four: Managing Business Ethics, for those who practice business ethics, focuses on how to manage ethics in the organization, marking an important new direction in business ethics research.

This includes work on ethical leadership, codes of conduct, stakeholder management, and corporate governance.
