Ethics & Organizations
**Ethics and Organization** provides a rich and valuable overview of an
increasingly important issue for management and organizations in contemporary
Debates about equal opportunities, environmental responsibility, consumer
redress and corporate governance have given ethics a prominent place in the
study of organizations in their social and natural environments. Within the
organization, new management styles that seek to energize employees by
manipulating their beliefs have highlighted the moral-ethical principles at
issue in contemporary management. At the same time debates around
postmodernism and relativism have moved ethics to a new centrality in
contemporary social theory.
**Ethics and Organization** addresses the questions that these and other
developments raise for the study of management and organizations, from a
multidisciplinary perspective. The book will be of value to advanced level
students and academics engaged in analyzing the moral, political and ethical
dimensions of organization theory and organizational practice.
