KIRKUS REVIEW

A ""wide-lens look"" at what businessmen think about ethics in business, drawing from three research projects undertaken by the author. Father Baumhart considers the image of the businessman, pressures that disturb, why businessmen act ethically (it's good business, for one thing), the role of conscience, personal influences for good (if you want to act ethically, get a good boss), the part played by culture, customs, the government, religion (more hopeful than helpful), education. In reading his data, he suggests a moderated competition, research. A profile the business community may wish to ponder, not finalized, or fully conclusive, but a bellwether.
