19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Yvette Borcia and Gerry Stern on December 10, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book presents a stakeholder perspective for understanding the big picture of corporate social responsibility (CSR). These stakeholders are grouped as follows:

organizational (employees, managers, stockholders, unions);

economic (e.g., customers, creditors); and

societal (e.g., communities, government and regulators, the environment).

The book examines the scope of CSR, and views it through the lens of the needs and values of stakeholders. It puts forth the arguments against CSR.

CSR is examined in a strategic context, placing the subject in sharp focus from a business perspective. The authors examine a long list of issues that define CSR in practice, each associated with a specific stakeholder group, using a real-life case study with supporting sources. Vivid examples of CSR strategies in action are provided.

The book is a treasure trove of information and insights. It is comprehensive, and extremely well organized-an outstanding book in every respect. For anyone interested corporate social responsibility, this book is must-reading.

This was required for a Sustainable Business Practices class and it was really a great fit for the class. It was easy to read and the information was important for both the class and the real world.

This book was required by my college for a class so it's not like I bought it for an interesting read or anything; but I did end up rather enjoying the topic. My high rating though was mainly due to the great condition the book was sent in along with the price I paid for it in comparison to many school bookstores; those two things alone are a great find for a college student!
