Book Description

Dec 25 2007 0415424291 978-0415424295 1

Modern business is obliged to meet increasingly demanding ethical, environmental, legal, commercial, and public standards as defined by wider society. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has therefore become an important consideration for managers at all levels, as well as one of the most vibrant areas of study and research in the field of business and management. This important new book provides a comprehensive and student-centred introduction to the key themes and issues currently being addressed in CSR around the world.

This book brings together material by the most influential teachers and scholars working in CSR today, as well as many of the most cited and important articles, and is clearly structured in three parts:

  • understanding CSR
  • applying CSR
  • managing CSR.

Each section includes an extensive and accessible editorial commentary that introduces the key debates and themes contained in the articles, as well as clearly defined learning objectives to guide the reader and challenging and thought-provoking study questions to consolidate learning. It also includes three major case studies to enable the reader to relate theory to the real world, focusing on Nike in Asia, Vodafone in South Africa, and ABN AMRO in Brazil. Drawing on examples and issues from across the globe, this book is essential reading for all students and managers with an interest in corporate governance and business ethics.

Review

We have been please to use Corporate Social Responsibility as a recommended text on MBA and MSc modules at ICCSR for some years now. On the evidence of the 2nd edition, we will continue to do so with renewed enthusiasm.
Professor Jeremy Moon FRSA, Director, International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ICCSR), Nottingham University Business School, UK

This is a terrific resource for those who want a thorough understanding of CSR. It will work in the classroom, and in the seminar room. It informs both researchers and practitioners.
R. Edward Freeman, University Professor and Olsson Professor, The Darden School, University of Virginia, USA

Taking a global perspective on CSR is more urgent than ever. Crane, Matten and Spence invite the reader on such a global, practical and intellectual journey to understand CSR in a way that provides an excellent overview of some of the core concepts and, in particular, invite students to engage in key debates. What I appreciate most about this book is the three editors’ lengthy and carefully written introductions to each chapter where CSR is appreciated as a complex and non-resolved area in need of more reflective debate.

Mette Morsing, Professor PhD, Copenhagen Busines School, Denmark

Crane, Matten and Spence have done a wonderful job with this textbook, given the comprehensive coverage, the analytical flair, the wealth of practical examples, all of which make knowledge of CSR both accessible and interesting. This is a useful reading for any student, academic, or practitioner who wishes to delve more into the fascinating world of CSR.

Dima Jamali, Professor of Management and Sustainability, Olayan School of Business, American University of Beirut
