Examining the relationship of national-cultural differences to ethical behavior, Ethical Dimensions of International Management helps the reader begin to understand the subtleties and nuances of ethical practices across nations. This innovative work uses short vignettes to illustrate each of its points while comparing and analyzing the primary influences on ethical behavior such as parenting, education, law, organizational cultures, and human resources management. Special features of the book include an extensive review and summary of relevant research literature, exhaustive coverage of a variety of different nationalities and cultures, and a direct comparison between Japan and the United States. Each chapter begins with several short cases and ends with helpful discussion questions. The book concludes with an analysis of the degree to which ethical systems of different nations may converge or diverge in coming years. Students and professionals in organizational studies, ethics, and international management will appreciate the unique viewpoint Ethical Dimensions of International Management presents. The pedagogical aids within the volume will spark discussion and debate.
