A brief alternative to its competitors,Business and Societycombines 12 chapters with 12 cases to offer a strategic approach to social responsibility. Streamlined coverage of key topics allows undergraduate students and MBA majors to focus on only what they need to prepare for in the real business world. Concise chapter content allows instructors to introduce outside resources into their course, such as readings, cases, and projects that enhance students' understanding of the material. Students will gain the background knowledge, skills, and insight necessary to analyze how organizations achieve both social and financial performance benefits through social responsibility. Two new boxed features reinforce the practical relevance of chapter material.Legal and Regulatoryboxes focus on the legal issues facing current organizations;Global Initiativesboxes look at the ethical dilemmas confronting international companies and organizations. What Would You Do?mini-cases appear at the end of each chapter, presenting students with a scenario that highlights ethics, social responsibility, morals, workplace conduct, and other important themes. Over 60% of the cases are new. In addition, the collection has been divided into two parts to clearly distinguish between organizations that have succeeded and those that have struggled with corporate citizenship. Real examples ofSocial Responsibility Auditsappear on the textbook web site. These reports provide students with an insider's look at how companies are actually measuring, assessing, and communicating their social and ethical performance results. Five expandedRole-Playing Exercises(previously calledBehavior Simulation Role-Playing Cases) promote teamwork and develop students' group decision-making skills. A newRole-Playing Exercise Appendixprovides an introduction to each of these exercises that students can read in preparation for group assignments.Teaching Notesin the Instructor's Resource Manual help instructors to organize and direct student teams.
