“Epstein and Hanson have compiled an excellent anthology that draws on the world's leading academics, consultants, and business leaders to explore the relationship between business organizations and global society. The four well-organized volumes cover a breadth of topics from corporate philanthropy to white-collar crime and whistle blowing as contributors analyze the issues of business ethics, social responsibility, and the demand for organizational accountability. Volume 1 examines corporate governance with an emphasis on the historical development of governance, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the future impact of global scrutiny on corporate leadership. From a philosophical, religious, moral, and cultural perspective, volume 2 examines the theory and practice of business ethics and the implications of contemporary ethical issues on business school curriculums. Volume 3 discusses corporate citizenship and the responsibility of contemporary corporations as agents of social change. Volume 4 showcases corporate profitability and social welfare through global collaboration. This set will be an important reference for academic collections. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections.”–Choice
