9780199211593: The Oxford Handbook of Corporate Social Responsibility (Oxford Handbooks)

Business schools, the media, the corporate sector, governments, and non-governmental organizations have all begun to pay more attention to issues of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in recent years. These issues encompass broad questions about the changing relationship between business, society and government, environmental issues, corporate governance, the social and ethical dimensions of management, globalization, stakeholder debates, shareholder and consumer activism, changing political systems and values, and the ways in which corporations can respond to new social imperatives.

This Oxford Handbook is an authoritative review of the academic research that has both prompted, and responded to, these issues. Bringing together leading experts in the area, it provides clear thinking and new perspectives on CSR and the debates around it.

The Handbook is divided into seven key sections:

* Introduction,
* Perspectives on CSR,
* Critiques of CSR,
* Actors and Drivers,
* Managing CSR,
* CSR in Global Context,
* Future Perspectives and Conclusions

About the Series
Oxford Handbooks in Business & Management bring together the world's leading scholars on the subject to discuss current research and the latest thinking in a range of interrelated topics including Strategy, Organizational Behavior, Public Management, International Business, and many others. Containing completely new essays with extensive referencing to further reading and key ideas, the volumes, in hardback or paperback, serve as both a thorough introduction to a topic and a useful desk reference for scholars and advanced students alike.

Review:

Comprehensive and detailed..."Would you recommend it?" Yes. It is a high-level critical analysis suited to a master's level course. * Isabelle Szmigin, THES * Andrew Crane et al. have compiled a series of essays which ambitiously is intended to span the contestable and controversial subject of Coporate Social Responsibility (CSR). They have drawn together leading lights in business theory along with important contributors from the fields of sociology, law, politics, philosophy and even one from peace and conflict studies whose remit covers corporate relations to society... As ambitious as the project was, the editors have achieved much of great worth with this book, which covers a great deal of a multifaceted subject. * Adrian Gray, Political Studies Review *
