    The course and students

    College Seniors. Course offered as an elective in economics department. Students want to understand different ways of organzing for doing business in a variety of cultures. We study the Oil business and the Timber business across time and space.

    Why Ishmael?

    Introductory book to force students out of their predetermined cultural view. It is a retelling of the Genesis story. I ask the first day, who is 'we'.

    Class activity

    Read and discuss the text.

    Assessment

    I used exams and student reaction papers.

    Student response

    Course caused changes in world views of the students. They liked it.

    Summing up

    I will use it next year, until The Story of B is available in paperback.
