This is a very timely book. The coverage it gives to the topic is superb. The individual, organisational and institutional causes of corruption are laid out along with analyses of the choices that we all have to make to deal with its consequences. In these times of increased scouting of corporate behaviour, there is something to learn here for policy makers, corporate leaders and researchers alike. Paul Sparrow, Lancaster University, UK Ronald Burke and Cary Cooper have assembled the most comprehensive volume of work available today on the topic of organizational corruption. However, the volume is far-reaching in more than just its content. In addition to attracting some of the most widely-read scholars in the area, Burke and Cooper have found space for a number of bright new voices and thus, insights as well. This makes for a volume that is as vibrant and exciting as it is complete. Scholars not only should read it, they will enjoy doing so. Marshall Schminke, University of Central Florida, US Corruption in organizations is creating an increasing number of victims and causing huge costs. This timely book brings together international researchers who address the causes and consequences of corruption in organizations and the action needed to reduce levels of corruption worldwide. Corruption is a worldwide problem and is likely to increase as a result of the current economic meltdown. Specific attention is devoted to causes of corruption such as individual levels of moral development, moral disengagement, greed, the routinisation of corruption, and organizational factors such as conflicts of interest, reward systems and organizational cultural values. The Companion suggests methods and examples to reduce levels of corruption that include education and training, whistleblowing, the increase of organizational controls through rules and structure, and developing an ethical organizational culture. Academics and postgraduate students interested in both crime and corruption in organizations will warmly welcome the Companion. Policymakers in government, those involved in professional services such as accountants and lawyers, as well as managers of any organization interested in conducting ethical business will find the Companion invaluable.

Widely embraced by fraud examination instructors across the country, Principles of Fraud Examination, 4th Edition, by Joseph Wells, is written to provide a broad understanding of fraud to today’s accounting students – what it is and how it is committed, prevented, detected, and resolved. This 4th edition of the text includes a chapter on frauds perpetrated against organizations by individuals outside their staff—a growing threat for many entities as commerce increasingly crosses technological and geographical borders.

Although increasing attention has been paid to it, there are no signs that crime and corruption in organizations is decreasing, so if you're a manager or government policy maker, and your mandate is to reduce crime and corruption, where do you start? The international authors of this book fill a critical need to address such a prevalent and costly topic with a detailed analysis of the risks associated with crime and corruption in organizations. They examine the causes and consequences, and the choices we face in our efforts to eradicate these social maladies. They focus on the risks to individuals and organizations surrounding criminal and corrupt acts, with an emphasis on the psychological, behavioral and organizational factors supporting such behaviors. Finally, they explore the phenomenon of crime and corruption across a diverse array of organizational settings (ranging from public to private, for-profit to non-profit) and occupational categories (e.g., police officers, physicians, accountants, and academicians). The constant barrage of scandals publicized by the media demands 'front burner' attention dedicated to stemming this tide. Accordingly, this book turns to prominent researchers employing their talents to produce more ethical organizations. The result is the most up-to-date thinking on both classic (e.g., cognitive moral development) and novel (e.g., moral attentiveness) approaches to crime and corruption, as well as scientifically-grounded approaches to reducing illicit behavior in organizations.

Legislating Privacy

While technological threats to personal privacy have proliferated rapidly, legislation designed to protect privacy has been slow and incremental. In this study of legislative attempts to reconcile privacy and technology, Priscilla Regan examines congressional policy making in three key areas: computerized databases, wiretapping, and polygraph testing. In each case, she argues, legislation has represented an unbalanced compromise benefiting those with a vested interest in new technology over those advocating privacy protection. Legislating Privacy explores the dynamics of congressional policy formulation and traces the limited response of legislators to the concept of privacy as a fundamental individual right. According to Regan, we will need an expanded understanding of the social value of privacy if we are to achieve greater protection from emerging technologies such as Caller ID and genetic testing. Specifically, she argues that a recognition of the social importance of privacy will shift both the terms of the policy debate and the patterns of interest-group action in future congressional activity on privacy issues.

During the last two decades, applied ethics has not only developed into one of the most important philosophical disciplines but has also differentiated into so many subdisciplines that it is becoming increasingly difficult to survey it. A much-needed overview is provided by the eighteen contributions to this volume, in which internationally renowned experts deal with central questions of environmental ethics, bioethics and medical ethics, professional and business ethics, social, political, and legal ethics as well as with the aims and foundations of applied ethics in general. Thanks to a philosophical introduction and selected bibliographical references added to each chapter, the book is very well suited as a basis for courses in applied ethics. It is directed not only to philosophers and to ethicists from other disciplines but to scientists in general and to all people who are interested in the rational discussion of moral principles and their application to concrete problems in the sciences and in everyday life.
