‘We have, at long last, entered a period of transformation with regard to capitalism and the role of business in society. The age of shareholder primacy is coming to a close. During such turbulent times, it helps to have a roadmap to help us navigate our way to the future. This Research Handbook of Responsible Management provides the intellectual guide needed.’
– Stuart L. Hart, University of Vermont, US, author of Capitalism at the Crossroads

‘Management has made the world that we live in. The world that we live in could now be destroyed by management. Massive inequalities, a sense that the elites are failing the people and a very real climate emergency have been caused by contemporary forms of organization. Now, more than ever, we need to rethink management, and this book makes a real contribution to that project.’
– Martin Parker, University of Bristol, UK
