Reviews"This volume includes a comprehensive collection of HRM issues explored in depth from both general and international theoretical perspectives. By taking a cross-cultural approach, it also examines the wider context in which IHRM initiatives are set and thus sheds a different light on some of the more `bread and butter' topics that one might expect to find in a text of this sort."
