"Waddock and Rasche expertly mix theory with practicality to introduce students and practitioners to corporate social responsibility and how it is developed and applied in companies ... [T]his work brings a much-needed perspective to the sustainability discussion. It is a very timely and comprehensible read, even given its attention to academic literature. The authors present research findings in a readable fashion, lacing the details of studies with current examples to make the mundane come to life ... Recommended." - B. B. Vitali, CHOICE "This is a timely book. Not only does it synthesize the work of many, but also it has the potential to shift the conversation about 'corporate social responsibility' from the periphery into the mainstream where 'corporate responsibility' is the future. It is an excellent resource for students and scholars." - R. Edward Freeman, University of Virginia and author of Stakeholder Theory: The State of the Art "This book is extremely readable without sacrificing attention to relevant studies. It does a wonderful job of translating research for those who do not spend their professional lives immersed in this topic." - Ann Buchholtz, Professor of Leadership and Ethics and Research Director of the Institute for Ethical Leadership, Rutgers University and coauthor of Business and Society "In their must-read book, Sandra Waddock and Andreas Rasche make a compelling case for value-creation through values. It confirms: infusing enterprises with a vision of sustainability is an indispensable ingredient for long-term success." - Georg Kell, Executive Director of the UN Global Compact
