CHOICE Review

Palmer (Kent State Univ.), whose research interests include ethical theory and applied ethics, has compiled this collection of articles authored by himself and 13 other contributors from various academic institutions in the US, Canada, and Turkey. 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. Articles address a wide variety of topics, including transparency and respect for persons who conduct e-business transactions, adherence to corporate social responsibility principles by businesses, the ability of users to control personal information in such applications as Facebook, copyright issues and the protection of intellectual property, fairness of Internet sales tax policies, relationships between buyers and suppliers and how to establish trust between them, and the potential manipulation of purchase decisions based on various versions of Web site design and page layout. 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
