Summary note
"Corporate Social Responsibility Failures in the Oil Industry, edited by Charles Woolfson and Matthias Beck, directly challenges the oil industry's claims of corporate good citizenship, now widely advanced as part of a global public relations offensive. The volume spans the industry's reach, from the troubled waters of the U.K. offshore Continental Shelf, with its horrendous legacy of the Piper Alpha oil rig disaster, to the inhospitable shores of Newfoundland, with its own tragic legacy of lost lives, to the new frontier of oil corporate colonialism in the former Soviet Union and the icy plains of Alaska. It is essential reading for those who seek to improve the position of workers and communities within the oil industry's global reach."--BOOK JACKET.
