‘This book breaks a new path within the field of international human resource management. It is written by an international team of leading specialists and researchers and offers deeper and more critical insights into IHRM topics than found in most mainstream textbooks. Written with a sense of urgency, the book includes and addresses important and topical issues that often are overlooked or neglected in conventional textbooks. The authors, impressively and in a highly readable manner, relate people management issues within global organisations to the wider complexities of international employment relations and the global political economy. The book does not shy away from addressing controversial issues of ethical and political-economic nature and is bound to raise important questions to be explored and discussed in the classroom. This is, indeed, a timely and much awaited text that takes the teaching of international human resource management to the next level’
'This excellent and innovative book deserves a wide readership, especially among practitioners and students of IHRM. The editor and contributors are a talented team'
the first chapter is essential, and the rest is worth to be read, because of the perspective. However only the first chapter is good.
Good book, students understand very well the topic and the used language.
The module was withdrawn in the 2014-15 academic year.
Text was passed to M.Khan for consideration on an International HRM module he is developing at the University of Lincoln.
