Extract

The development of this book began in summer 2005 when we started to approach authors to contribute to the Handbook of Research on Global Corporate Citizenship. We were gratified that so many eminent scholars from various disciplines were interested in this topic. We should like to thank all the contributors for their hard work and timely cooperation. Also, we should like to thank Francine O’Sullivan and the Edward Elgar staff for their kind and reliable help. Christian Vögtlin prepared all the files for the publisher and helped enormously with the editing of the chapters and the preparation of the Handbook. During the preparation, two scholars passed away soon after they had sent us their papers. We were very sad to learn that Iris Marion Young died on 1 August 2006, and that Robert Solomon passed away on 2 January 2007. We remember both these scholars as insightful thinkers and eminent scholars in their disciplines. Andreas Georg Scherer Guido Palazzo Zurich and Lausanne December 2007 xx
