What Reviewers Are Saying
"'This volume provides an invaluable collection of essays that consider diverse perspectives on the social responsibility of corporations. As such it provides a very satisfying and balanced combination of contributions that should be useful to any serious student - either in practice or academe - of the role of corporations in society.' - David Crowther, London Metropolitan University, UK 'This book has drawn together a distinguished and international group of writers to provide a wide-ranging discussion of the responsibility of corporations to society in general, including discussion of the role of companies in promoting human rights, accomplishing sustainable development and 'restoring and keeping public trust'. The contributors put calls for 'Corporate Social Responsibility' into its legal framework and provide a wide range of possible solutions to perceived weaknesses in the law. The authors are to be congratulated for adhering to the editorial mandate to provide information in a 'succinct style which is comprehensible to the lay person as much as the well-informed'. This work is an indispensable tool for anyone engaged in the 'globalisation' debate. It gives valuable, international, multi-faceted insights on the current situation, on work-in-progress to create change and of the theoretical perspectives which inform both.' - Janet Dine, Queen Mary College, University of London, UK 'Finally a book that explores the legal considerations related to corporate responsibility, and does so from a global perspective with strong underpinnings of ethics. This book should prove a useful guide for those academics and managers interested in the historical and emerging legal framework that guides corporate decision making around responsibility.' - Sandra Waddock, Boston College, US"
