Business Ethics examines the ethics of business through issues related to common business situations. The fifth edition discusses theories of ethics connected with business and explores the complexities of business sustainability-the difficulties of operating profitably while upholding society's increasing demands for ethical and social responsibility. Through contemporary Australian and global case studies, the authors explore important ethical issues and problems including ethical reasoning in business, whistleblowing, equal opportunity and the environment. Business Ethics provides students with the conceptual tools required for systematically considering and resolving ethical dilemmas with integrity, through a balanced approach combining theory and principles with practical examples and clear learning features.

Damian Grace is an Honorary Associate in the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney. Stephen Cohen is an Associate Professor of Philosophy in the School of Humanities at the University of New South Wales and Director of The Ethics Centre at Compliance Australia.
