'Wilton's an Introduction to Human Resource Management offers an in-depth analysis of all elements of HRM . Beginning with a full exploration what HRM is and how it has developed students are given a good foundation with which to move on to part two which explores the practicalities of managing the employee relationship, sections on managing performance and managing reward offer good theoretical underpinning and are offered with a positive approach to both of these important aspects of the HRM role. The final section which looks at contemporary issues facing HRM and is extremely pertinent as it explores the challenges which face Human Resources in these stringent economic times' -- Patrick Hutchinson
