Since the first edition arrived in 1985, Canadians have held a claim few others can make: we have our own national encyclopedia. The idea of covering all branches of knowledge or aspects of a subject in one body of work dates back to 1728 in England. The Encyclopedia contains more than 30,000 multimedia items including images, maps, games, audio and video. Multimedia is augmented through acquisition and partnerships with Maclean’s magazine and The Canadian Press. The new interactive features include curated content exhibits, interactive timelines, immediate updates of important events and a user-generated content map that invites Canadians to share their stories. The site also offers a new learning centre for teachers and parents that contains classroom resources, quizzes and themed study guides.
The Concise Encyclopedia of Business Ethics aims to provide readers with a useful, concise overview of the central concepts and debates in business ethics. Our goal is not to be exhaustive, but to provide key definitions, main areas of controversy, and pointers for further reading. The Encyclopedia is intended to be useful to: students of business ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility; scholars working in adjacent fiends (such as economics and law) who are unfamiliar with current work in business ethics; and scholars of business ethics seeking greater understanding of concepts outside their specializations.
