The authors and editors of this volume have made an impressive contribution to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) literature by integrating research from different cultures and various types of organizations. Given the diverse approaches to the CSR topic, several different research methodologies are employed, and data in the chapters is nicely summarized in both qualitative and quantitative terms. One of the most impressive features of the book is the varying “levels of analysis” across the topics. [...] this book offers both a broad analysis of the CSR literature and practices from many parts of the globe, but it is well documented to also serve as a reference regarding the development of this field.
