IHRM is a comprehensive guide for today’s researchers, students, and practitioners. It has the advantage of including chapters covering each of the major topics, carefully chosen and orchestrated by an excellent editing team and written by leading specialists in each topic.

Worthy successor to 3rd edition, with lots of useful examples. particularly useful for detail on strategic international HRM. However, I do wish the 4th ed. still used the case studies that were a feature of the 3rd ed.
