The Civil Corporation is top draw reading for business professionals, management students and academics, activists and public servants. It goes to the heart of the issue of business in society, cutting through the rhetoric of campaigners and business-speak by framing the tough questions in balanced and yet provocative terms. Crucially, it connects an insightful vista of the broader landscape with a set of practical 'do's' that have stood the test of time. The book was awarded the prestigious Academy of Management's Social Issues in Management Book Award in 2006, confirming that Zadek has produced what every author aspires to: a classic book that is timely in its application.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Every field needs its gurus and, in Simon Zadek, corporate accountability has a leading contender for the title.' Corporate Citizenship Briefing

'Just as corporate responsibility is a 'must-do' rather than 'nice-to-do' for our society, The Civil Corporation is a 'must-read' rather than 'nice-to-read' for practitioners and scholars.' Zhiye He, Professor at Guanghua School of Management of Peking University, Editor in Chief of the Peking Business Review, Director of the Management Case Center of Peking University

'Simon Zadek is a visionary of an unusually practical sort. His ideas invariably are cutting edge but he is able to relate them to the most immediate concerns of those who run - and run to keep up with - the modern corporation. The Civil Corporation enables us to move beyond isolated experiments towards a more fundamental shift in the accountability and purpose of business and its role in global governance.' John G. Ruggie, Professor of International Affairs, Director of the Center for Business and Government, Harvard University, and UN Special Representative for Business and Human Rights

'The Civil Corporation breaks new and critical ground on the impact of the business and society debate on the dynamics of business strategy. I single it out as a must read for all scholars and practitioners who study and manage businesses that seriously aim at blending societal and economic welfare in their decisions and actions.' Maurizio Zollo, Shell Fellow in Business and the Environment, and Associate Professor of Strategy, INSEAD

'The intricate analysis ... makes a powerful case for businesses to reassess their values, relationships and processes' Financial Times

'One of the leading thinkers in the area of corporations and their relationship with society.' International Labour Review

'Broad-ranging, high-minded, and leading edge.' Future Survey 'Makes a powerful case for businesses to reassess their values, relationships and processes.' Financial Times, 31st October, 2001
