It is the goal of this work to contribute to the Corporate Governance literature, which has evolved over the last twenty-five years. Even though there is a voluminous literature on "Corporate Governance" stemming from Jensen and Meckling (1976), it is still an unfinished work and still has room for further research and elucidation. There has been extensive research interest in the allied realm of "Corporate Social Responsibility" with the outcome of this research work providing further progress and understanding. The aim of this volume is to provide further research insight on topics, which still have not reached saturation in terms of analysis and understanding. The efforts in this volume will measurably add to the body of literature and understanding in the field. This volume is structured into three parts: a Global Overview section, a section with papers focusing the performance impact of Social Responsibility Procedures and a third section devoted to papers on implementation and measurement procedures. There are twenty-one papers in the volume with forty authors, many of whom are prominent in this field, contributing their efforts to this volume.
