Book Reviews

It is greatly encouraging to see yound dynamic Indians, such as Harsha, thinking about CSR and taking the subject further to help Indian business and institutions further their concerns on development as well as catch up with the international community.

Harsha Mukherjee is as possionate about CSR as a painter is about her art or musician about their music. After years of following up with the developments that have shaped the evolution of corporate social responsibility legislation and practices and its teaching, internationally and in India, she has put together a primer that is concise, an executive's handbook and a learner's delight.
