Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Summing Up: Recommended. Research and faculty collections.” (Choice, 1 March 2012)

"If the publication of a handbook represents both the crystallization of research into a movement or field as well as serving as a platform for future studies, then this handsome and thorough title certainly serves both purposes well.” (Communication Director, 1 December 2011)

"An impressive, accessible volume that includes writing by a significant group of international scholars and practitioners, this handbook will prove instructive to CSR practitioners and students alike." (Ethical Corporation Magazine, 1 July 2011)
