Handbook of Business Ethics

The Handbook of Business Ethics: Ethics in the New Economy” edited by Laszlo Zsolnai was published in 2013 by Peter Lang Academic Publishers in Oxford.

It is a collective work of the CEMS Business Ethics Faculty Group. Chapters in the book follow the same structure. Each one begins with a short summary of the topic and provides a glossary of the most important terms. Part 1 describes the central issue. Part 2 gives a stateof-the-art overview of current theories and practices. Part 3 introduces new approaches and solutions. Part 4 analyzes real world examples. Part 5 provides conclusions. The Bibliography at the end of each chapter contains both references and suggested additional titles in business ethics. To increase its relevance to real life, a variety of cases and other empirical materials are included in the book.
