While comparative studies of CSR are relatively scarce, cross-cultural comparative work has made significant progress in recent years. Jamali collects an interesting mix of contributions, spanning a wide spectrum of country contexts, including the USA, Canada, Australia, China, Japan, Korea, South Korea, Tunis, Egypt, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Philippines, Pakistan, Nigeria. Fifteen chapters address a wide range of industries, including food and beverages, consumer electronics, telecommunications services, automobile and component manufacturers, pulp and paper, mining, oil and gas, retail and banking.
