Praise for The Global Corporation

“This is a terrific resource for globalizing the discussion of business ethics. Real cases…real business issues…real ethical challenges.”
R. Edward Freeman, Academic Director of the Business Roundtable Institute for Corporate Ethics and Olsson Professor of Business Administration at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business
“Hartman and Werhane offer an excellent selection of cases that can help prepare future leaders for the serious social and ecological issues that global firms will undoubtedly face. Tackling issues as wide-ranging as ensuring safe water supplies, access to pharmaceuticals, labor conditions, managing diversity, and bottom-of-the-pyramid approaches to poverty reduction, to name only a few, Hartman and Werhane provide up-to-date cases, as well as a couple of classics, that can help guide future leaders’ understanding of the important roles that businesses can—and need to—play in society today and into the future.”
Sandra Waddock, Galligan Chair of Strategy, Professor of Management, Boston College
“At long last, a truly international business ethics case book! Hartman and Werhane have provided a comprehensive set of superbly written cases that cover all the important ethical issues in international business, including the environment, global poverty, operating in corrupt environments, and the obligations of pharmaceutical companies, among other topics. The cases are just the right length for classroom discussion. Moreover, their book has outstanding coverage of Africa and Asia. Good cases from the U.S. and Europe are included in ways that enrich but do not dominate. This case book could be used any where in the world. Professors Hartman and Werhane have produced the best international business ethics case book available today.”
