Please see below for highlights of the praise this book has been receiving:

“Containing a range of original and insightful inter-disciplinary chapters, [it] provides a timely contribution to international debates about the extent to which organisational ethics can have global application. The authors eruditely explore discourses positioning high moral fortitude against pragmatic legal obligation. This important contribution is a must read for those concerned about the future of the planet, and interested in exploring the juxtaposition of humanity’s contribution to ethical decline alongside intense commitment to achieving sustainability.”

- Prof. Kate Hutchings, Professor of HRM, Department of Employment Relations and Human Resources, Griffith Business School, Griffith University, Australia

“Ethics has been covered in management, organisation and related areas, though albeit rather late. By its nature this is a critical issue, [and] this volume covers it from a critical perspective of a deeper level of a different order. It also has a multicultural and international orientation that is original as far as I know.”

- Prof. John Burgoyne, Professor of Management Learning, Lancaster University Management School

“Superbly edited and engagingly written, From Critique to Action offers a new take on business ethics that is fresh and challenging. The book reveals the complexity and conundrums inherent in organizational ethics and demonstrates refreshingly the value of original ideas and deep research in guiding ethically sound practice.”

- Prof. Charles Harvey, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Provost, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Newcastle University

“A fine exploration and many good answers on questions of ethics and management; a trend setting study on business ethics.”

- Prof. Dr. Willem Mastenbroek, Department of Economics, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Chief Editor of ManagementSite

“This book is both timely and important. It manages to combine the rigours of good evidence based analysis with the practicalities of the real business world. It transcends national and cultural boundaries and gives us powerful insight into the dilemmas of the modern high speed data rich world in which we now all live.”

- Margaret Exley CBE, Chairman of Stonecourt Consulting
