This book, one of the first to try and draw diverse strands of Corporate Responsibility issues into one resource, provides a unique perspective on the various elements that make up CSR. It does this by virtue of staying away from dry descriptions of terms and concepts extracted out of dusty tomes, and garnering the collective experience and knowledge of the world's foremost practitioners and experts in this field. As its name implies, I found & A to Z of Corporate Social Responsibility' highly enlightening, rich in content and professionally written book. This book is a big asset for all people who walk the walk in the field of business and society.

Scholars currently discuss various concepts affecting the social sphere. The debate on corporate responsibility is permeating increasingly to the public sector

Scholars currently discuss various concepts affecting the social sphere. One of the most prominent phenomena is the one of Social Entrepreneurship (SE). Due to the fact that definitions of the term get increasingly precise, there is less remaining confusion about the meaning of SE itself, however, many related discussions are taking place simultaneously pointing into a similar direction. The debate on corporate responsibility is permeating increasingly to the public sector. The aim of the present work is to discuss possible implications of CSR concepts that could be observed in public organizations.

This is the world’s first complete reference on CSR, compiledby the Institute for Corporate Cultural Affairs (the ICCA). Theentries have been written by leading experts, leading globalthinkers and CSR practitioners.

Finally! Probably everyone interested in and working with or on Corporate (Social) Responsibility will be glad that this publication came out. Indeed, it was about time: In the last two decades, CSR has become an `en vogue' topic and more and more dealt with in theory and practice. However, many misunderstandings, misinterpretations and prejudices circulate on the contents of CSR. The "A to Z" manages to clarify many aspects of CSR and paves the way for a common starting point by providing for a holistic approach. Hopefully, it will thereby contribute to further inhibit mere window dressing by just including the term CSR in corporations' annual reports and media info.
The book can serve as an important basic tool for everyone dealing with CSR. It covers a wide range of topics and core terms related to CSR (like human rights and the environment) and defines the most important concepts, codes, organisations and landmarks. It therefore lives up to even a critical reader's expectations as well as to the various developments in regard to CSR and the broadness and pluralism of the CSR debate. It is very useful encyclopaedia which can be used by students of all fields, academics, researchers, NGO workers, business people etc. because indeed it uses a `common language' which is understandable independently of the specialization of the reader. Luckily, the information provided is neither influenced by interests nor superficial, yet the encyclopaedia-style allows for precise and neutral information and definitions which are based on contributions by over 100 experts, so to say the crème de la crème of the CSR-community. Nevertheless, many of the definitions include pros and cons and sometimes critical remarks which allow for further food for thought and are an important input to an independent forming of opinion by the reader.
Despite the fact that the "A to Z" includes contributions mainly by authors of Anglo-American or Western European origin, it is by no means ethnocentric or cultural relativistic - in the contrary, it can be used by a de facto international CSR community. However, it would have been nice to have a universal encyclopaedia with contributors with various national backgrounds. Maybe the next edition will consider this. Though the price might seem shocking at first sight, I think the purchase of the "A to Z" makes a valuable long term investment for anyone really interested in the subject.

Being interested in CSR and attending CSR lectures in a British university I was amazed about the (academic) quality and comprehension of CSR related terms covered in this encyclopaedia.

Beside explaining essential basic terms the authors also focussed on related terms which build together an excellent understanding of CSR, its extent and impact for academics as well as practitioner.
The book fulfils these theoretical and practical expectations by including the expertise and experience of 102 authors. These authors are specialists in particular CSR related areas resulting in specific definitions and descriptions.
It became apparent that the books' editors made a competent and up to date choice when compiling authors and terms defined in this encyclopaedia.

So every page of this book delivers valuable information, written by specialists who are well known from everyone interested in CSR. Therefore this book combines "right" terms with "right" authors for doing "right" things in CSR.

Thanks to ICCA for publishing this book. There is a lot of literature on CSR but this book has become an essential in our library as it really is a great (most probably the best) reference guide on CSR.
