'Editors Rowley (City University London) and Jackson (Univ. of London) have assembled a valuable collection of original essays covering 50 of the most fundamental concepts in human resource management... The excellence of the contributors permits the editors to fulfill multiple objectives: the book is succinct yet comprehensive, and written in a rich, engaging style that avoids jargon and overly technical treatments. Each of the 50 concepts is clearly defined and explained, with only a few charts and graphs to illustrate key points and relationships. A particularly helpful feature is the cross-referencing of related topics at the end of each section, along with suggestions for further reading. This book offers a useful counterpoint to traditional introductory texts such as Robert Mathis and John Jackson's edited Human Resource Management (12th ed., 2008). Highly recommended.' - J. C. Gottfried, Western Kentucky University (CHOICE, August 2011)

This is a very useful contribution by two outstanding scholars in the fields of human resource management and international human resource management. With their worldwide network of equally outstanding contributors, they have put together a book that defines and explains virtually all the key concepts of both fields. Rowley and Jackson have assembled a very useful book that also provides the reader with a vast set of further references and readings that makes the book a complete source of information on the latest thinking in the fields, as well as on some of the original thinking in the fields. - Randall S. Schuler, Rutgers University and Lorange Institute of Business Zurich
