Edited by two senior public human resource management scholars, this well-regarded edited volume gathers concise essays by major scholars on critical issues in the field of contemporary public human resources management. Providing valuable insight for students and practitioners alike, the book's four-part organization-Context, Techniques, Issues, and Prospects-supports an impressive breadth of coverage, with updates to eleven of the fifth edition's best essays. Building upon that foundation, the editors commissioned new chapters to cover critical topics such as emotional labor, human resources issues with social media, veterans' preferences, gendered organizations, volunteer management, employment benefits, and post-employment benefits. With logical organization around in-depth discussion of contemporary issues, the book can be used as both a core text and as a supplement, ably serving any PHRM instructor's course needs.

"Two leading scholars of public human resource management have assembled an impressive set of authors to address comprehensively the critical developments and issues in the field."

-- Frank J. Thompson

"Public Human Resource Management covers all the bases. Kearney and Coggburn bring together leading scholars writing, in clear and persuasive ways, on core themes and leading issues in public sector HRM. The leading compendium just got better! An excellent find."

-- Evan Berman

"Once again Kearney and Cogguburn have assembled a useful reader. The pieces are nicely balanced between providing up-to-date overviews of current debates and providing guidance to practitioners on policy options. Chapters on strategic management, performance, dispute resolution, and labor relations go beyond material in the leading public personnel textbooks."

-- Dr. Ellen V. Rubin
