Summary

The new edition of this highly successful and groundbreaking text continues to cover key topics in International Human Resource Management while increasing coverage of emerging theory and issues in this area. Globalization of business is forcing managers to grapple with complex issues as they seek to gain or sustain a competitive advantage. Faced with unprecedented levels of foreign competition at home and abroad firms are beginning to recognize not only that international business is high on top management's list of priorities but that finding and nurturing the human resources required to implement an international or global strategy is of critical importance. The role of human resource management in this complex, ever-changing world is central to this book.
