"In Good Company explores with nuance the 'doing good' aspect of corporate social responsibility while looking critically at the problems of letting the market rule. It is a key addition both to the emerging body of work on corporate social responsibility and to the study of development more generally." (Deborah James)
"This excellent book is a welcome addition to the growing anthropological literature on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and other forms of 'ethical capitalism' . . . This is a fascinating book, not only for its nuanced account of the internal workings of one company's CSR program, but also for its intelligent and critical engagement with broader questions of power, moral economy, and the workings of transnational companies in the neoliberal global economy." (Dena Freeman Critique of Anthropology)
"By tackling both the global plane of corporate social responsibility players and the structure of a single corporation, Rajak takes us on a fascinating journey. This is a particularly important book for our current moment. It demonstrates with great clarity not only the failures and false promises of corporate social responsibility but also its dangers. Striking!" (Catherine Besteman)
