A Roller Coaster Ride of Feelings:
What truly resonates about this book is how it effortlessly elicits emotions directly tied to ethical dilemmas faced by businesses worldwide. By delving into diverse research approaches, the authors provoke introspection on our own value systems and challenge us to critically evaluate moral decision-making processes within organizations.

However, these shortcomings can be overcome with patience and a willingness to engage with the content in smaller, manageable sections.
With its comprehensive coverage, thought-provoking insights, and the authors’ credibility, I would give the Cambridge Handbook of Research Approaches to Business Ethics and Corporate Responsibility an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Description : Ed Freeman’s influential ideas on stakeholder theory, business ethics, humanities, and capitalism became foundational in the management field and turned around the mainstream thinking about business. Stakeholder theory developed by Freeman and others posits that business is not as much about profits, but rather about creating value for its stakeholders, including employees, customers, communities, financiers, and suppliers. The relationship between a company and its stakeholders is the essence of business and should be of utmost attention to its managers. Managers should avoid resorting to trade-offs by prioritizing one stakeholder group (e.g., shareholders) over the others and strive to run their companies in the interests of all stakeholders. The idea of pursuing the interests of all stakeholders became revolutionary in management and went far beyond the management field, expanding to Law, Health Care, Education, Public Policy and Administration, and Environmental Policy. This book is a collection of Ed Freeman’s most influential and important works on stakeholder theory as well as business ethics, humanities, and capitalism....
