As a relatively young subject matter, corporate social responsibility has unsurprisingly developed and evolved in numerous ways since the first edition of this textbook was published. Retaining the features which made the first edition a top selling text in the field, the new edition continues to be the only textbook available which provides a ready-made, enhanced course pack for CSR classes.
Authoritative editor introductions provide accessible entry points to the subjects covered - an approach which is particularly suited to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate teaching that emphasises a research-led approach. New case studies are integrated throughout the text to enable students to think and analyze the subject from every angle. The entire textbook reflects the global nature of CSR as a discipline and further pedagogical features include chapter learning outcomes; study questions; ‘challenges for practice’ boxes and additional ‘further reading’ features at the end of each chapter.
This highly rated textbook now also benefits from a regularly updated companion website which features a brand new 'CSR Case Club' presenting students and lecturers with further case suggestions with which to enhance learning; lecture slides; updates from the popular Crane and Matten blog, links to further reading and career sites, YouTube clips and suggested answers to study questions.

'An authoritative effort to interpret the now vast literature on CSR. With wit and skill the editors negotiate a path through definitional disputes.' - Journal of Industrial Relations
'This is a terrific resource for those who want a thorough understanding of CSR. It will work in the classroom, and in the seminar room. It informs both researchers and practitioners.' - R. Edward Freeman, University Professor and Olsson Professor, The Darden School, University of Virginia, USA
'Crane, Matten and Spence invite the reader on a global, practical and intellectual journey to understand CSR in a way that provides an excellent overview of some of the core concepts and, in particular, invite students to engage in key debates. What I appreciate most about this book is the three editors’ lengthy and carefully written introductions to each chapter where CSR is appreciated as a complex and non-resolved area in need of more reflective debate.' - Mette Morsing, Professor PhD, Copenhagen Busines School, Denmark
'Crane, Matten and Spence have done a wonderful job with this textbook, given the comprehensive coverage, the analytical flair, the wealth of practical examples, all of which make knowledge of CSR both accessible and interesting. This is a useful reading for any student, academic, or practitioner who wishes to delve more into the fascinating world of CSR.' - Dima Jamali, Professor of Management and Sustainability, Olayan School of Business, American University of Beirut
