Demonstrate for your students the importance of business ethics, sustainability and stakeholder management from a strong managerial perspective with Carroll/Buchholtz's BUSINESS AND SOCIETY: ETHICS, SUSTAINABILITY, AND STAKEHOLDER MANAGEMENT, 8E. Students learn how effective business decision makers balance and protect the interests of various stakeholders, including investors, employees, the community, and the environment -- particularly as business recovers from a perilous financial period. Proven content emphasizes the social, legal, political, and ethical responsibilities of a business to both external and internal stakeholder groups. The authors effectively balance strong coverage of ethics and the stakeholder model with a new focus on one of business's most recent, urgent mandates: sustainability. This edition's new sustainability clearly reflects the interconnectivity between business and the natural, social, and financial environments, illustrating how all three must be maintained in balance to sustain current and future generations. A wealth of new real business cases and Ethics in Practice cases blend with coverage of the most recent research, laws and examples. Practical applications teach future managers to focus their reasoning and enhance the precision with which they consider and make ethical decisions. With this edition's comprehensive package, including a Test Bank correlated to AACSB standards, dynamic new website and other resources, you can provide your students with the solid understanding of ethical, sustainability and stakeholder issues they need for success in business and today's society.

Horribly written. Consumed with grammatical errors, run-on sentences, & improper use of words. It was almost as if English wasn't his first language. Half the time reading this book is spent trying to understand what he is trying to say. For example, (I'm reading this while typing it) he says in his book, "In the stakeholder view of firms, the management must perceive as stakeholders not only those groups that the management thinks have some stake in the firm but also those that themselves think they perceive they have a stake in the firm." .... WHAT?! And this is the entire book people. Trust me. If you need this book for your class, all I can say is, "good luck".
