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 and Stakeholder Management, 8/e, International Edition". 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' 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.
