“Even readers who may disagree with Brenkert's conclusions … will learn to apply worthwhile analytical methods for balancing ethical and other business considerations. Highly recommended.” (Choice Reviews, October 2008)

"In his Marketing Ethics, George Brenkert addresses significant moral issues and dilemmas in marketing using the moral concepts of freedom, integrity, justice, privacy, and welfare. It is carefully argued and comprehensive in scope. This is a genuine contribution."
