520    Originally published in 2004, this book offers a fresh 
       approach to understanding responsible business practice. 
       Global protests against multinational companies often give
       the misleading impression that the interests of 
       multinationals and of peaceful societies are at odds. By 
       contrast, Fort and Schipani contend, not only does 
       business benefit from a peaceful environment but it can in
       fact effectively foster peace through adopting responsible
       and open working methods. Firms that promote economic 
       development, that allow external evaluation of their 
       affairs and that build a sense of community both within 
       the company and in their local areas make a great 
       contribution to building a more harmonious culture. 
       Relevant for academics and practitioners, the book shows 
       how companies can encourage collaborative working across 
       borders, discourage corruption and create citizenship and 
       problem-solving practices which tend to reduce violence 
       and increase social harmony
