Food Industry Management and Economic Development
The authors, both of whom come from a long tradition of farmers and agriculturalists, have observed and experienced firsthand the challenges faced in agriculture and food industries in both the United States and abroad. They own farmland and are involved in agricultural production in the United States. They both have lived in Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and have traveled in Africa, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. These experiences, some professional and some personal, have given the authors exposure to a variety of public and private sector managers operating in agribusiness environments worldwide. These experiences have shaped their perspectives and views on the opportunities and challenges of managing food industries.
From the book:
Through management case studies, the book presents specific examples of opportunities in which private sector companies have participated in the establishment, expansion, and shaping of food industries and stimulated agricultural development. Entrepreneurs understand that the tasks of a manager are three: to articulate the goals of the organization, to establish measurable outputs, and to develop an organizational culture that encourages people to align their commitments and activities with the goals of the organization and its targeted outputs. It is the people who can successfully carry out these tasks who will be the successful public and private sector managers in the food industry. And it is these people who will supply the food needed to feed the world’s expanding population, who will stimulate economic and social development, and who will transform the quality of the lives of the disenfranchised of the world. It is they who will create peace and prosperity for all.

Ethics, People, and the Workplace
An organization’s most valuable assets are its people. This is the main thrust behind the case studies that comprise Edward L. Felton’s latest book, Ethics, People, and the Workplace. The case studies in this volume deal with the ethics of people’s behavior and how folk relate to or treat others in the workplace. This collection of business ethics case studies were designed to be used in the classroom, but reading groups, church groups, and other study groups will find these studies useful, as well.

Making Ethical Decisions in the Workplace
From the Preface:
Values are found in the behavior of managers—not in their words or in codes of conduct but in the actions that they take in the workplace.
This volume is a collection of management case studies. Each case describes a real situation faced by a manager in the workplace. And each situation calls for action.
The hope is that as you wrestle with the issues found in the cases, your perspectives and understanding of ethics will expand and your commitments to enhance the quality of decision-making in your management communities are strengthened. After all, it is you and others like you who are creating work environments known for ethical practices and both personal and professional accountability.

Ethics and Values in Your Personal Life
This is the first volume in the Ethics and Values Series under the imprint, Themistes Books. Written by Edward L. Felton Jr., Ethics and Values in Your Personal Life presents a collection of case studies that focus on our actions in the workplace, where we spend enormous portions of our lives. As Dr. Felton states in the preface, “Our actions and responses are generally spontaneous and, as a result, are often not aligned with our professed values. . . . The true test of our real values is not what we profess them to be, but how we actually express them through our interactions with others in our daily lives.”
