Focusing on expatriate management, this volume addresses the following issues: how expatriate performance should be conceptualized and operationalized; what the role of personality is in predicting adjustment and performance; and what the nature of training should be. In addition, it critically examines the state of research in the field of expatriate management from a historical perspective. Contributors to this volume have transferred theoretical and methodological advances in domestic employee management and acculturation to the study of expatriation. Each contribution demonstrates the level of theoretical, methodological and statistical sophistication that is required to comprehend the expatriation phenomenon.
