New Open Textbook – Good Corporation, Bad Corporation: Corporate Social Responsibility in the Global Economy
We’re very happy to announce that we’ve added a new addition to the B.C. Open Textbook collection.
Description: This textbook provides an innovative, internationally-oriented approach to the teaching of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and business ethics. Drawing on case studies involving companies and countries around the world, the textbook explores the social, ethical and business dynamics underlying CSR in areas such as: global warming, genetically-modified organisms (GMO) in food production, free trade and fair trade, anti-sweatshop and living-wage movements, organic foods and textiles, ethical marketing practices and codes, corporate speech and lobbying, and social enterprise. The book is designed to encourage students and instructors to challenge their own assumptions and prejudices by stimulating a class debate based on each case study.
Authors: Guillermo C. Jimenez, and Elizabeth Pulos
