About the Authors:

Jacques Cory is a businessman with a background in Economics and Business Administration (MBA from Insead, France) who has encountered many cases of despoiling stakeholders and minority shareholders in his long international career in top-level positions in the high-tech industry and in mergers and acquisitions. Cory decided to write a thesis and two books on this subject in a frank and open manner, in order to bring the subject to the forefront of the public’s interest. His first book ‘Business Ethics: The Ethical Revolution of Minority Shareholders’ was published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in March 2001. ‘Activist Business Ethics’ is his second book. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Transparency International Israel and a member of The Society for Business Ethics, and is very active in the Israeli business ethics community. Cory lectures at universities, companies and ethical organizations throughout the world on business ethics with a special emphasis on minority shareholders. Cory is also the author of the novel on ethics called ‘Beware of Greeks’ Presents’, published in March 2001 in Israel by Bimat Kedem Publishers.
