More About the Author

Christine A. Hemingway PhD., FRSA used to be responsible for some very big consumer brands when she worked as a marketing manager in a number of multi-national corporations. When she became an academic in later life she became interested in the role of personal values at work, with particular reference to social responsibility and sustainability. She has published in the 'Journal of Business Ethics'.

Product Description


'As we look towards the future of CSR, corporate social entrepreneurship (CSE) is assuredly on the cutting edge of growth and this book … makes a momentous contribution towards understanding its modes of realization. Eminently qualified, based on experience and scholarly background, Hemingway expertly crafts four modes of moral commitment which frame the range of manifestations of social entrepreneurship. Her interviews and research form a concrete empirical basis for her detailed descriptions of the interrelatedness of personal values (integrity within) and the supportiveness of the organization culture in which corporate social entrepreneurship grows. Her identification of the ascendency of the Active CSE as the richest ideal serves as a model for integrity in action. This is a must-read for all those interested in the future of CSR; this is a major contribution to both theory and practice.' Archie B. Carroll, Professor Emeritus of Management, University of Georgia

'This book combines insights from philosophy, psychology, empirical studies, and practical experience into an eloquent explanation about why people behave badly in business and why individual actors comprise the core of CSR. Practitioners and business students will find this book engaging and informative.' Joanne B. Ciulla, Coston Family Chair in Leadership and Ethics, University of Richmond

'For too long, management researchers have acted as if individual managers were irrelevant to our understanding of corporate social responsibility. Christine Hemingway offers a refreshing antidote to this myopia with a powerful account of what she calls 'CSR as a subjective state'. Weaving together theory and data on ethics, agency, entrepreneurship and personal values, she demonstrates beyond any doubt that micro-level analysis of CSR has a tremendous amount to offer the field.' Andrew Crane, George R. Gardiner Professor of Business Ethics, York University

'This book is long overdue. Corporate social entrepreneurship is the exciting new wave in understanding corporate social responsibility. To date, however, the buzz has been loud and the academic response muted. Hemingway fills this silence. She pushes the reader to see how corporate responsibility stretches far beyond the simple task of avoiding fines and scandals to include goals that spring from the self-transcendent values of employees.' Thomas Donaldson, Mark O. Winkelman Endowed Professor, University of Pennsylvania

'Finally someone tells us that the artificial divide between CSR and ethics is just a big hoax. Dr Hemingway does so by exposing the reader to a challenging question: is a company 'good' because it is run by 'good' people? If you study, research or practice CSR - this is the book to read right now.' Dirk Matten, Hewlett-Packard Chair in Corporate Social Responsibility, York University

Book Description

Business ethics teaching appears to have had little impact, particularly in the light of continued malpractice and misdemeanour in the form of financial scandals, environmental disasters and adverse consequences for communities. In this timely work, Hemingway reveals fresh insights to suggest how integrity in the workplace can be encouraged.
