We are delighted to announce that three of our management titles have been shortlisted for the CMI Management Book of the Year 2016 competition in the Management and Leadership Textbook category.

The selected entries are chosen based of their effectiveness to support a course of study on a management and leadership topic and are key resources for students and academics working within the management and leadership field. The winners will be awarded the title of CMI Management Book of the Year held at an awards ceremony at the British Library in February 2016.

The CMI Awards are an important marker of excellence within the field of management theory and we are thrilled that three SAGE titles have been shortlisted. At SAGE we believe that scholarship and education is at the heart of any healthy society and in support of this aim we strive to disseminate high quality content to the academic community globally.

The SAGE shortlisted entrants are:

Corporate Social ResponsibilityCSR

Esben Rahbek Gjerdrum Pedersen

Why has CSR become part of the mainstream business and academic agenda in the 21st century? How can CSR be fully integrated in business strategy and day-to-day operations? Do companies become more vulnerable to criticism from stakeholders if they make public their commitment to CSR?

These are just some of the questions and challenges explored in this exciting new textbook. Readers will not only gain comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the history of CSR, the key CSR drivers, the main theoretical CSR perspectives and the dominant CSR practices found in the business community, they will also, more crucially, learn how to implement CSR in practice.

Contemporary Critical Perspectives

Brigid Carroll, Jackie Ford and Scott TaylorL

The authors, an international team of experts, guide students on an entertaining journey through key concepts, contemporary issues and debates in leadership studies.

Students can:

  • Understand how theory comes to life through a fascinating selection of case studies, ranging from political leaders such as Tony Blair to business leaders such as Steve Jobs, and from leadership in the arts to leadership in gang culture.
  • Be inspired by the‘Leadership on screen’ feature, which encourages analysis of how leadership is represented in film and TV, including The Dark Knight, Game of Thrones, The Hunger Games and Grey’s Anatomy.

Critical and rigorous, yet also easy to digest, this text is ideal for students and practitioners with or without any prior knowledge of the field.
