About the book:

It is easy to condemn obvious wrongdoers but what about the supporting cast of complicitors: business partners, employees, investors, news organizations, and others. Whether we’re aware of it or not, almost all of us have been complicit in the unethical behavior of others. In Complicit, Professor Max Bazerman confronts our complicity head-on and offers strategies for recognizing and avoiding the psychological and other traps that lead us to ignore, condone, or actively support wrongdoing in our businesses, organizations, communities, politics, and more.
