Review 'The US courts have advised corporations that they should carry out some good works, to deflect the danger that an "aroused public" might inquire into their actions and the enormous privileges granted to them by state power. This wide-ranging study brings to vivid light some of the ways in which the lessons are applied in the practices of "corporate social responsibility," revealing as well how discussion of such "ethical capitalism" often obscures the reality of capitalist ethics and its human consequences. It makes a strong case that the public should be aroused, and offers ideas as to what can be done.' -

'This is an important book that offers a much needed critique of what has truly become what the authors call the 'opium of the people': corporate social responsibility. Fleming and Jones offer an incisive and unflinching critique of the religion of CSR' -
