"It is well thought out and might very well become a milestone; one of those books that shape the teaching and research agenda of the field." --Comparative Industrial Relations Newsletter Outlining the consequences of internationalization for corporations and human resource policy, International Human Resource Management offers practical insights into strategic and organizational development and encourages students to develop their own understanding of the processes involved and to formulate their own strategic solutions. The text covers four major areas: the changing international context of contemporary companies and the implications for both company and human resource strategy; national differences in human resource management and their effects on organizational and personnel policy in multinational companies; the practical problems of human resource management in internationally operating companies, including assembling international staff and assessing and rewarding international managers; and industrial relations and democracy and their relation to international corporations. International Human Resource Management is essential reading for students of human resource management, international business, and international strategy, and for personnel managers and practicing line managers in transnational corporations. "This volume offers a very thorough and well-organized contrast and comparison of human resource management at the international level . . . . A gold mine of organized information for international instructors and students. --Choice
