Corporate social responsibility (CSR) expresses a fundamental morality in the way a company behaves toward society. It follows ethical behavior toward stakeholders and recognizes the spirit of the legal and regulatory environment. The idea of CSR gained momentum in the late 1950s and 1960s with the expansion of large conglomerate corporations and became a popular subject in the 1980s with R. Edward Freeman's Strategic Management: A Stakeholder Approach and the many key works of Archie B. Carroll, Peter F. Drucker, and others. In the wake of the financial crisis of 2008–2010, CSR has again become a focus for evaluating corporate behavior. First published in 1953, Howard R. Bowen’s Social Responsibilities of the Businessman was the first comprehensive discussion of business ethics and social responsibility. It created a foundation by which business executives and academics could consider the subjects as part of strategic planning and managerial decision-making. Though written in another era, it is regularly and increasingly cited because of its relevance to the current ethical issues of business operations in the United States. Many experts believe it to be the seminal book on corporate social responsibility. This new edition of the book includes an introduction by Jean-Pascal Gond, Professor of Corporate Social Responsibility at Cass Business School, City University of London, and a foreword by Peter Geoffrey Bowen, Daniels College of Business, University of Denver, who is Howard R. Bowen's eldest son.

In the Course of Performance is the first book in decades to illustrate and explain the practices and processes of musical improvisation. Improvisation, by its very nature, seems to resist interpretation or elucidation. This difficulty may account for the very few attempts scholars have made to provide a general guide to this elusive subject. With contributions by seventeen scholars and improvisers, In the Course of Performance offers a history of research on improvisation and an overview of the different approaches to the topic that can be used, ranging from cognitive study to detailed musical analysis. Such diverse genres as Italian lyrical singing, modal jazz, Indian classical music, Javanese gamelan, and African-American girls' singing games are examined. The most comprehensive guide to the understanding of musical improvisation available, In the Course of Performance will be indispensable to anyone attracted to this fascinating art. Contributors are Stephen Blum, Sau Y. Chan, Jody Cormack, Valerie Woodring Goertzen, Lawrence Gushee, Eve Harwood, Tullia Magrini, Peter Manuel, Ingrid Monson, Bruno Nettl, Jeff Pressing, Ali Jihad Racy, Ronald Riddle, Stephen Slawek, Chris Smith, R. Anderson Sutton, and T. Viswanathan.

"La mondialisation, la question environnementale et les mutations de la société imposent à chaque entreprise d'être toujours innovante, tant sur le plan technologique qu'organisationnel. La modernisation de la chaîne d'approvisionnement constitue la suite logique de l'évolution de la logistique d'entreprise depuis les années 1950. Cet ouvrage présente les éléments nécessaires à la mise en place d'une logistique durable : la prise en compte de la dimension économique qui met en exergue les poids et rôle des connexions intra et inter-organisationnelles. C'est la remise en cause des notions de logistiques amont, interne, aval, de mutualisation des transports, de prestations logistiques, de traçabilité et de systèmes d'information ; la dimension environnementale qui s'intéresse à des aspects tels que l'éco-conception, la re-production, la gestion des déchets, la logistique des retours et encore le transport 'vert' ; la dimension sociale-sociétale qui permet de poser un regard sur les ressources humaines internes et externes. Pour assurer une bonne mesure de la performance, 'La logistique durable' propose l'élaboration d'un tableau de bord logistique." [Source : 4e de couv.]
