From the Publisher'Set to become a seminal work on the subject.'
'Challenging and important issues, readably presented.'
Long Range Planning
'A daring attempt at integrating two worlds: international business and development ... In this groundbreaking book, Hopkins provides a detailed, albeit sympathetic explication of multinational enterprises (MNEs) through the lens of CSR ... A bold attempt to merge the policy and practice of CSR with international development ... a comprehensive introduction to the main themes of CSR and international development.'
Critical Perspectives on International Business
'The subject of the book is clearly important and deals with an area of thought little explored in the field of development studies: how the private sector, through Corporate Social Responsibility, can foster development. Now a very experienced and distinguished development economist addresses the question, and does so with a high academic standard and with a very incisive examination of current ideas and of institutions, both governmental and international. It is clearly written, with plenty of wit and humour� Delightful to read.'
Emilio Klein, Professor of Economics, University of Santiago, Chile and former Director, Institute of Labour Studies (ILO) in South America
'At last, the case for how big corporations might move beyond charity to meet the 21st century's biggest challenge: poverty. How many more Henry Fords, Bill Gateses and Warren Buffetts are we willing to waste in the shantytowns of the developing world? All they need is what every successful corporation (and democracy) has � business expertise and the legal means to organize and expand productively.'
Hernando de Soto, President of the Institute for Liberty and Democracy, Lima, Peru, and author of The Mystery of Capital and The Other Path
'Very readable, well referenced and thought provoking.'
Adrian Payne, Head of CSR, British American Tobacco
'Mike Hopkins has never been afraid to question conventional wisdom. His book steps into areas that we in the ILOare taking very seriously, and provides a different perspective which raises important questions for business, governments, the UNsystem and others concerned with international development.'
Dr Gerry Rodgers, Director, ILO, Geneva
