Edmund Burke: Modernity, Politics, and Aesthetics examines the philosophy of Burke in view of its contribution to our understanding of modernity. Stephen K. White argues that Burke shows us how modernity engenders an implicit forgetfulness of human finitude. White illustrates this theme by showing how Burke's political thought, his judgment of the modern system of morality and policy, and its taste for a false sublime are structured by his aesthetics.

Today, more and more organizations are realizing the importance of practising ethics in their business dealings. And the engineering profession is no exception to this. For, any policy or practice that gives a go-by to professional ethics—which essentially entails fair and transparent dealings based on sound moral principles—cannot enjoy the confidence of the customer for long. It is in this context that a book on Professional Ethics is very significant. This systematically organized text opens with an introduction to Human Values and discusses, with great skill and expertise, the various approaches to the study of ethical behaviour, ethical theories, value-based ethics and the engineers’ responsibility for safety and risk, collegiality and loyalty. Besides, the responsibilities of engineers in organizational setting, and global issues such as environmental ethics, computer ethics, and Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) are also covered in this text. The Case Studies lend a practical orientation to the book, and the Review Questions sharpen the analytical skills of the students. This is a must have book for the students of engineering and management.

The first part analyses the deeper questions that underlie business activities, arguing that when sustainability is accepted as the legitimate objective of business, stakeholder issues are more easily resolved. This means that the neglected question of ownership must be addressed. The second part focuses on power and dependancy issues between individuals and businesses, asking such questions as should businesses support their employees as an alternative to family and church. In the final part the impact of most recent trends in business is discussed: the activities of multinational companies, the changing gender balance, privatisation and the loss of power of trade unions.
