The first textbook to address the whole spectrum of multinational business ethics, Richard T. De George's Competing with Integrity in International Business examines moral debates about operating ethically in virtually every major market environment in the world. With examples from a variety of international settings, including the former Soviet bloc, China, Japan, and the European Community, and taking the company of integrity as its objective, this text offers guidelines for multinationals in underdeveloped countries as well as original strategies for corporations competing in corrupt environments. Backed by the distinguished author's wide and varied experience, both as a scholar and as consultant to firms and business institutions around the world, Competing with Integrity in International Business covers cooperation with local government, taxes, respect for and compliance with local society, human rights, national development, and other challenges, as well as responses to immoral adversaries and the use of publicity to expose corrupt actions. With insightful discussion of topics such as corporate culture and corporate virtue and chapter case studies from across the globe, this comprehensive text will prove invaluable for business and philosophy students at all levels.

"[L]ucid, well-informed, and surprisingly comprehensive. For this reason it constitutes an important contribution to the rapidly evolving literature in international business ethics."--Thomas Donaldson (Georgetown University) in Ethics "Provides both creative strategies and specific examples of how managers have used moral imagination to solve tough ethical dilemmas. Competing With Integrity In International Business belongs on the shelf of every manager who operates in other countries. It is...the most complete, practical guide for multinationals that wish to be successful as well as ethical in their international business."--Ethical Management "Essential reading for business people, public policy makers, scholars and citizens concerned with the question of how to invigorate ethical business behavior in the dynamic and volatile global political economy of the 1990's."--Edwin M. Epstein, University of California at Berkeley
