Book Description

28 Aug 2008 052184830X 978-0521848305 1
It is widely accepted that corporations have economic, legal, and even social roles. Yet the political role of corporations has yet to be fully appreciated. Corporations and Citizenship serves as a corrective by employing the concept of citizenship in order to make sense of the political dimensions of corporations. Citizenship offers a way of thinking about roles and responsibilities among members of polities and between these members and their governing institutions. Crane, Matten and Moon provide a rich and multi-faceted picture that explores three relations of citizenship – corporations as citizens, corporations as governors of citizenship, and corporations as arenas of citizenship for stakeholders – as well as three contemporary reconfigurations of citizenship – cultural (identity-based), ecological, and cosmopolitan citizenship. The book revolutionizes not only our understanding of corporations but also of citizenship as a principle of allocating power and responsibility in a political community.

Product Description

Review

'This book offer a comprehensive, authoritative and thought provoking discussion of corporate citizenship, but it does more than explore a key theme in contemporary society. It reflects on whether corporations are transformative in and of political arenas, thus contributing to the continuing search for a political theory of the firm.' Wyn Grant, Professor of Politics, University of Warwick

'A comprehensive and sophisticated analysis of the implications of understanding the corporation as a citizen. It should stimulate fresh thinking about the political, social and environmental responsiblities of the firm and the role it can and should play in contemporary society.' David Vogel, Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent on corporate citizenship 19 Nov 2012
By Sofia Keskinarkaus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When you feel the the dozens or articles on your desk are becoming overwhelming and the endless perspectives about citizenship start to cloud your analysis: this books clears things up. Crane, Matten & Moon write a well-structured and scientifically rigorous book about the different aspect of corporate citizenship.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book should be required reading for business students 12 Mar 2011
By Maxwell Platoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In Corporations and Citizenship, Crane, Matten, and Moon take on the considerable task of analyzing the new role(s) that corporations have come to play in national and international politics and cultures. Though the reading is quite dense at times, the authors do the hard work of sifting through hundreds of published writings on the subject in order to discover what dominant ideologies exist about corporate citizenship (CC) and corporate social responsibility (CSR), as well as the appropriate measures corporations may take within society. The authors' findings are fascinating, and they are supported by bountiful examples of corporate intervention in issues that extend far beyond those of the enterprise.

Honestly, I have not read very much literature of this genre, so I found Corporations and Citizenship, which represents the latest ideas about corporations, to be fascinating. It truly expanded my thinking about what it means to be a citizen, corporation, or governmental body, and the shifting responsibilities that each of them face over the next century. As the focus of top MBA programs turns away from the old methods of creating profit and value and towards sustainability and accountability, the information presented here is indispensable for a rigorous course in business ethics.

Finally, I would like to note that prior coursework in philosophy (especially social theory) will be helpful to readers in understanding the material.
