The essays in this volume examine the emergence of the concept of corporate social responsibility, and the uses that have been made of the language of corporate responsibility to explore the business/society relationship. The first section of this title traces the emergence of the concept of corporate social responsibility as a way of understanding and framing the business/society relationship. Section two of the volume looks at 'Definitions and ethical justifications' with a view to exploring current discussions of the nature, scope and source of the social responsibilities of corporations. Section three, 'CSR and Management: Critical Reflections', explores the integration of CSR theories and justifications into business management and business management theories. Articles in the final section of the volume apply the concept of corporate social responsibility, and the theoretical frameworks and analytical tools to which it has given rise, to the examination and resolution of specific social issues arising out of the economic activities of corporations.
