Editorial Reviews

Business Line
Topical publication on an inescapable imperative.

The Chartered Accountant
While the concept- Corporate Social Responsibility [CSR) still stands at its nascent stage, the author deserves instant appreciation for bringing out a complete book on CSR covering all the aspects and associated activities…. The book is a good collection and collation...by virtue of its depth, dimension and erudition...opens up numerous debates and fresh areas of research-besides being an enlightening reading.
