Reviews

This Handbook is a superb collection of articles that thoughtfully examine the efforts of the social-enterprise movement to balance the interests of investors, other stakeholders and society. These essays provide an articulate analysis of the philosophical underpinnings that go into properly advancing the objectives of these important constituencies. It is a valuable resource for decision makers and others who want to understand each of the competing perspectives. Randy J. Holland, retired, Delaware Supreme Court
