Designed to help readers explore and understand the key concepts and latest research behind the strategic management of people in organizations that operate in a global context, this accessible book provides concise coverage of HRM concepts, balancing comparative approaches and US and non-US schools of thought.

Chapter-opening vignettes (short cases) exemplify the chapter's core topics and show readers how chapter content can be applied. Extensive references make it easy for readers to explore concepts in more depth.
