`The authors have provided a fascinating examination and exploration of IHRM theories, practices and debates. Reflecting on the global landscape of HR, this book offers a wide range of current examples, tasks, questions and further reading, enabling readers to immerse themselves and get to grips with this often challenging and complex world. This is an invaluable resource for both students and lectures, as well as managers engaging with the international dimensions of HRM.' -- Pia Glen
`This new book engages the reader to think beyond conventional human resources policies and consider employees more holistically. For example, in chapter 10 there is an interesting evaluation of research into the benefits of intrinsic motivations (non-pay rewards such as autonomy, trust, fun) in comparison to conventional extrinsic rewards, (salary and performance related incentives). The book is also student friendly, accessible and provides a contemporary and well written course text.' -- Michael L Nieto
