Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0273651773, Paperback)

This exciting new text tackles the issues raised by cross-national differences in HRM styles. Specifically, it identifies a number of themes: the meaning of globalization and the extent to which it is a novel phenomenon; the challenges to national traditions; the way in which many key issues within international HRM are contested; and the extent to which change in national systems is evident.

The book is split into 2 parts and these themes underlie the treatment of the content of the book. The first part of the book examines the context of international HRM through an examination of the process of globalization and the origins of the distinctiveness of national business systems. The second part is concerned with particular issues relating to multinational companies, such as how and why they transfer practices across operations in different countries.

In addition, this part tackles HR issues in international context, such as management development, pay and reward, and recruitment and selection. This book will appeal to undergraduates taking International HRM courses, those taking Masters programs in HRM and MBA students. It may also be used as supplementary reading for comparative industrial relations courses that feature multinational companies.
