Product Description


"This books promises to be a new classic. It is authoritative and comprehensive, with excellent case studies, and it's written so as to be digestible by students." -- Marjorie Kelly BUSINESS ETHICS 20050701 "This textbook takes an innovative, imaginative, unique approach to the teaching of corporate social responsibility by providing a wealth of online sources, case studies, and print references to the general English-language literature of the CSR field." -- William Frederick 20051101 "The approach is unique as compared with other CSR texts on the market. It is precisely this novel approach that I think will appeal most to graduate students, who are looking for something different from their graduate school experience than just a lengthier repetition of the methods and materials covered in their undergraduate business school curriculums. Further, they [the students] want to see immediate practical applicability of the concepts and methods learned in the classroom to their present career responsibilities, and I think the issue/mini-case/web-based examples/discussion question format in Section II of the book does that particularly well. I would urge the adoption of such a text to the faculty who teach this course. This book's format is appealing for use in an MBA course in which students are more practically-oriented. Overall, I think that this is a good treatise on CSR for the graduate audience it is intended." -- Linda Clarke, Ph.D., J.D. 20051101 "The book maps the landscape of CSR, advocates a strategic approach taking global stakeholders into account, and presents a wealth of case studies to illustrate its points." -- 20060321 "There is not a single entrepreneur today who is not talking about corporate social responsibility (CSR). Werther and Chandler help us realize that once you see CSR in terms of its strategic implications for the core business you realize that well-understood business principles apply." -- Indian Management 20060718 "The text presents a careful selection of content, being organized in such a way that it stimulates learning and provides convenient access to the extensive CSR literature that is readily available on the internet. The authors leave it up to the readers to form their own opinion on controversial and debatable issues, providing guidance to accessing information on the internet by seeking out the websites and documentation (online). Part III of the book is an invaluable appendix that makes this publication on vital addition to any professional or business library. It is intended as an additional resource for the reader who is interested in information beyond the case study references and URLs provided throughout the book." -- Jose I. Galan Corporate Social Responsibility and Strategic Management 20070403 Hello Dr. Chandler, First of all - excellent CSR book. Your approach is comprehensive and fair. It simplifies teaching this course a great deal. Actually, in 4 years of teaching a CSR course - this is the first time I use a textbook! I will use it this summer. Thank you! JS Julia Sagebien, Ph D Associate Professor Dalhousie University -- Julia Sagebien 20070518 "I found the book to be very well organized and included interesting material and case studies. It is certainly of value added to anyone teaching CSR." -- Dima Jamali 20070921

About the Author

David Chandler received his Ph.D. in strategic management and organization theory from the University of Texas at Austin. His research interests lie at the intersection of the organization and its operating environment. Theoretically, he is interested in explaining why organizations respond in different ways to the same environmental forces, as well as understanding the consequences of these different actions. Empirically, he is interested in studying these questions within the context of corporate social responsibility, organizational ethics, and firm/stakeholder relations.

Since graduating with an undergraduate degree in American Studies: Politics and Government in 1991 (University of Kent, UK), David has divided his time between the United States, the UK, and Japan, working in the fields of business, politics, and education. In addition to his Ph.D., David has an M.Sc. in East Asian Business from the University of Sheffield, UK, an MBA from the University of Miami, FL, and an M.S. in Management from the University of Texas at Austin.

I purchased this for a graduate course in law, and must admit that I felt it contained too much fluff and too little substance. Overall, very very disappointing, and not worth the purchase price.

By Yvette Borcia and Gerry Stern - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book presents a stakeholder perspective for understanding the big picture of corporate social responsibility (CSR). These stakeholders are grouped as follows:

organizational (employees, managers, stockholders, unions);

economic (e.g., customers, creditors); and

societal (e.g., communities, government and regulators, the environment).

The book examines the scope of CSR, and views it through the lens of the needs and values of stakeholders. It puts forth the arguments against CSR.

CSR is examined in a strategic context, placing the subject in sharp focus from a business perspective. The authors examine a long list of issues that define CSR in practice, each associated with a specific stakeholder group, using a real-life case study with supporting sources. Vivid examples of CSR strategies in action are provided.

The book is a treasure trove of information and insights. It is comprehensive, and extremely well organized-an outstanding book in every respect. For anyone interested corporate social responsibility, this book is must-reading.

This book was required by my college for a class so it's not like I bought it for an interesting read or anything; but I did end up rather enjoying the topic. My high rating though was mainly due to the great condition the book was sent in along with the price I paid for it in comparison to many school bookstores; those two things alone are a great find for a college student!
