‘From its inception and professional organization in the late 1970s, the macromarketing field has maintained a strong interest in ethics and distributive justice and an article on the topic was published in the very first issue of the Journal of Macromarketing in March 1981. The Handbook on Ethics and Marketing features chapters by leading macromarketing scholars that explore how ethics relate to marketing systems as well as to other macromarketing interests including environmental sustainability, human and economic development, and global supply chains. Thus, the Handbook should become an excellent resource for new macromarketing scholarship.’
– Terrence H. Witkowski, Editor, Journal of Macromarketing
