This is an impressive and important book that creates the benchmark for how everyone should learn about international human resource management (HRM). International HRM is not simply an organizational strategy, it’s a set of challenges rooted in questions about business and work in society. By embracing rather than assuming away the fundamental issues of interests, power, social relations, and economic systems, this volume richly but accessibly equips students with the basis for deep, critical engagement with all of the standard topics in international HRM, and with additional issues that should become standard.
Globalization is not a new phenomenon, but some of its consequences are. The new edition of International Human Resource Management critically examines how globalization affects labor and employment today. It raises important question about organizational change, sustainability, and ethical issues. We need this book more than ever.
This is a balanced compendium of International Human Resource Management. The book explores issues of contemporary relevance in ways that make it a useful resource for students and practitioners.
International Human Resource Management is ‘The’ Handbook for the study of the management of employment, within several key and new contexts and areas, with a distinctive critical vein, which makes it distinctive, attractive and novel for any scholar interested in uncovering the drivers of changes and transformations which have been (and still are) affecting the world of work and workers.
This is a terrific textbook for teaching International Human Resource Management. Academics frustrated with the narrow scope of previous International Human Resource Management textbooks will welcome this new edition by Martinez Lucio and Robert MacKenzie. Most importantly, this book goes beyond a narrow focus on the company level and studies International Human Resource Management within its various contexts, ranging from local to international influences and considering a range of societal, economic, and governmental actors and pressures, which all impinge on the management of human resources. Thus, this textbook provides an insightful and critical account and approach for students, academics, and practitioners alike. The textbook has become an instant classic for teaching International Human Resource Management, but the book and its various chapters will also be of relevance for comparative and international classes in employment relations, management, and work & organizations.
