Strategic Corporate Social ResponsibilityFifth Edition is a comprehensive CSR text with a strong emphasis on strategy. Balancing theory and practical applications, the text is divided into two parts. The first half of the text provides an overview of the field, stakeholders perspective, CSR as a strategic filter, and how to implement CSR effectively. The second half of the book uses more than 20 cases to illustrate the organizational, economic, and societal issues surrounding CSR. The engaging cases capture contentious debates across the spectrum of CSR topics that culminate with a series of questions designed to stimulate further investigation and debate.
