'The concept of corporate social responsibility has taken center stage in the literature of business. Everyone is now aware of the enormous impact of business firms in general and financial institutions in particular on every aspect of modern civilization and in every corner of the globe. In People, Planet and Profit: Socio-Economic Perspectives of CSR, Idowu, Kasum and Mermod have constructed a comprehensive and challenging anthology focused specifically on how large multinational corporations deal with a host of issues from environmental impact to accounting practices.' Nicholas Capaldi, Director, Center for Spiritual Capital, Loyola University, USA 'I find this book stimulates our thinking on CSR from a new perspective of social and economic development. Its breadth and scope, the variety of data explored at micro and macro levels, and the stark nature of the argument will allow business people and politicians to seek new solutions and new measures of social and economic performance.' Liangrong Zu, International CSR Specialist, International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization, Italy 'People, Planet and Profit is an impressive achievement. At a time when studies of CSR continue to be dominated by northern hemisphere concepts and examples this book extends the parameters for analysis and debate to areas that hitherto have been neglected. As such People, Planet and Profit should be essential reading for academics and policy makers who are serious about contributing to CSR as a global concept.' Stephen Vertigans, Head of School of Applied Social Studies Robert Gordon University, UK
