Abstract

The definition of CSR is not entirely clear because defining a legal framework to respond to the socio-economic expectations of a given community depends on a deep and clear understanding of the historical context and the political, social, and cultural landscape of that community. Both Corporate Social Responsibility in Emerging Markets and Business and Social Crisis in Africa add elements and details that expand our comprehension of CSR beyond the narrative normally attached to western economies. Besides, the books tell us a story about the political role of the corporation that illuminates the purpose of this business entity in the global economy.

Keywords: Corporate Social Responsibility, Corporation, Emerging Economies, Developing Markets, Business Autonomy, Corporate Purpose
