Editors: Charles Richard Baker (Willumstad School of Business, Adelphi University, Garden City, New York, USA)
Book Description:
Corporate Social Responsibility is a topic that has gained widespread significance in recent years in a variety of academic disciplines, as well as in corporate boardrooms. Edited by Professor C. Richard Baker of Adelphi University, New York, this book presents nine original chapters addressing CSR practices and issues from a global perspective. The expert authors come from a variety of different countries and as a result they offer a global perspective on issues related to CSR. The areas of specialization of the authors range from banking and investment management, to marketing luxury goods, to construction and manufacturing. The approaches towards CSR include methodological perspectives ranging from theoretical studies, to empirical analyses, to surveys and case studies. As a whole, the authors take the position that CSR is both important and something which should be encouraged on a worldwide basis. This book may be a useful accompaniment to both undergraduate and graduate courses with a focus on business and society, corporate social responsibility as well as business ethics and management. In addition, it would be a useful resource for academics interested in pursuing research on CSR issues and business executives interested in studying CSR practices from a global perspective. (Nova)
