Reviews & Statements

"The issues raised here regarding the renegotiation of foundational concepts given a digitally enhanced future have wide ranging implications far beyond narrow business concerns. Ethical Issues in E-Business can also be read as an important discussion in 'reconstructing the boundaries of daily life.' "

– Maurice Hamington, Metropolitan State College of Denver, USA

The contributors' backgrounds reflect the international scope of e-business, and the content of the articles reflects the broad variety of issues and ethical dilemmas inherent in the conduct of e-business. This work looks at business ethics as postmodern because the global spread of e-business is challenging fundamental business practices. … This work is one of the most comprehensive collections on this topic to date. Summing up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections.

– G. Klinefelter, Argosy University, CHOICE magazine

Selected as a Fall 2011 Shelf-Worthy Academic Title by Baker & Taylor.
