`Most books on IHRM-related topics address issues from the context of the
multinational corporation; this book expands that perspective by looking at
how different cultures tend to treat HR practices under conditions of
globalization and within the domestic context. This book will be one that
students and practitioners will want to have in their personal libraries' - Mark Mendenhall, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
`An interesting and original treatment of an increasingly important subject.
Students and academics will welcome the extensive use of case material, as well as a
geographical coverage that is significantly broader than is found in most
other books on this topic'.
Professor Paul Blyton, Cardiff Business School
