Michael Blowfield is Senior Research Fellow at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment where he researches business transformation in an era of climate change and resource constrained economies. A most comprehensive range of international examples are used throughout. An aspect that I particularly value is the level of critical engagement – it makes for a more interesting read.
I recommend it because it adopts a critical approach that encourages students to discuss and debate both the ethical and the pragmatic aspects of current theory and the practice of corporate responsibility.
