Dear AIB members:


Excuse what may seem like self-promotion but as someone who has had a long-run interest in improving the teaching and practice of ethics in the Academy of International Business, I wanted to let you know that Amazon currently has the price for THE ETHICAL PROFESSOR: A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO RESEARCH, TEACHING, AND PROFESSIONAL LIFE (Routledge, 2019) reduced to an all-time low of $US 5.88 for the DIGITAL version of the book and $US 5.59 for the PAPERBACK version of the book.  This is way below the listed price so really is a great buy.  Here are the links:

Kathy Lund Dean, Paul Vaaler and I wrote the book with the idea of it being primarily used in doctoral seminars and read by doctoral students and junior faculty members. So this would be a great time to pick up a copy of the book, either for teaching purposes or for yourself.


Here's the book write-up: The purpose of The Ethical Professor is to provide a road map to some of the ethical dilemmas that doctoral students and newer faculty members are likely to face as they enter a career in academia (the Academy). Academic career paths appear to be quite standard, transparent, and achievable with dedicated and hard work. Argued in this book, however, is that the road map to a successful academic career is not so easy. There are ethical pitfalls along the way, starting with entry into academia as a new PhD student. These ethical dilemmas remain equally opaque as faculty progress in their careers. The ethical pitfalls that plague each of the steps along the academic career path are often not visible to doctoral students and young faculty members; nor are they well prepared to spot them. Ethical issues are seldom discussed and little training is provided on how to spot and handle these potential road blocks to a successful career in the academy. Based on extant research and collective years of academic experience, The Ethical Professor seeks to shorten the learning curve around common ethical pitfalls and issues by defining them, sharing research and experiences about them, and offering a discussion framework for continued learning and reflection. This innovative new volume will be key reading for doctoral students and junior faculty members in social science departments in colleges and universities, as well as managers undertaking an MBA. Due to the increasing complexity of managing academic institutions, more seasoned professors, administrators, and college deans and presidents, will also benefit from the research presented here.


Thanks! I hope you enjoy the book and we’d welcome any feedback of course (send to [log in to unmask]).
