    Environmental Regulation

    Edited by John McEldowney, Sharron McEldowney
    Featuring an original introduction by the editors, this important collection of essays explores the main issues surrounding the regulation of the environment.

In the USA it is more formalised, juridical, adversarial and formally dependent upon legal rules. The articles highlight the fact that despite differences in the UK and the USA's regulatory styles, environmental regulation today has much in common with both traditions. Learn More

  11. Corporate Citizenship

    Corporate Citizenship

    Edited by Dirk Matten, Jeremy Moon
    Corporate Citizenship (CC) has emerged as a widely used way of describing the role of business in wider society.

This collection takes stock of the debate by tracing back its origin, identifying the key topics and delineating the key controversies. The volume places the discussion on corporate citizenship in a political context within the wider debate on the role of business in society.
