The new edition of this highly successful and groundbreaking text continues to cover key topics in International Human Resource Management while increasing coverage of emerging theory and issues in this area. Globalization of business is forcing managers to grapple with complex issues as they seek to gain or sustain a competitive advantage. Faced with unprecedented levels of foreign competition at home and abroad firms are beginning to recognize not only that international business is high on top management's list of priorities but that finding and nurturing the human resources required to implement an international or global strategy is of critical importance. The role of human resource management in this complex, ever-changing world is central to this book. This edition has addressed the increasing demand for added features and pedagogical aids, presented within a fresh and modern design that reflects its updated content. The book focuses on the needs of senior undergraduates and postgraduates on International Business or Human Resource Management courses. It is a core text that will be valuable to the studies of many students with a keen interest in this area.
