Acknowledgments

As in the case of many scholarly endeavors, this book could not have been completed without the support of numerous other individuals. In many respects, an edited volume is a joint accomplishment among the editors, the authors, and the publishers. This book has been a creative collaboration among the editors, and it also required the contributions of many colleagues who produced the chapters contained in it. Although we do not name each of the authors individually, we do want to acknowledge their efforts to produce chapters that we believe are insightful, informative, and forward looking. The case authors' own varied interests and perspectives have helped represent a diverse set of responses to today's corporations. We hope that the chapters promote healthy dialogue and constructive change regarding the current and future role of corporations in all of our lives.

In addition, we appreciate the support of Oxford University Press in the development of this book. In particular, we thank John Rauschenberg for his ongoing support of the project. We also want to acknowledge Robert Milks, Sara Needles and Trish Watson for seeing the book through its completion. Jennifer Buckle provided helpful proofreading and copyediting at earlier stages of the book. We appreciate the helpful and constructive suggestions provided by the following reviewers: Maribeth Metzler, University of Cincinnati; Mette Morsing, Copenhagen Business School; Bryan Taylor, University of Colorado– Boulder; and Dean Ritz.

Steve thanks Geriel for her ongoing support and encouragement and Arcadia for her constant reminder that our futures matter. He also thanks the Arthur W. Page Center at the Penn State College of Communications for their support during the final stages of the book. George thanks Sally Planalp for her continuing love and support and especially for her patience with his recovery from overcommitment. Juliet acknowledges her children, Katherine, James, and Alexander, as representatives of the generation that carries the burden of our irresponsibility. Finally, we express gratitude to all those who work for social justice and environmental sustainability around the world, recognizing that business as usual will probably mean no planet as usual.
