Review:

'If you only read one HRM book read this one: it's brimming with clearly explained concepts and contemporary examples and covers everything you need to engage with the debates, either as a student or a practitioner. If only all textbooks were this good!' - Keith Grint, University of Warwick, UK 'This is undoubtedly a very well established and highly regarded HRM text. The new edition brings a freshness and vitality to the study of HRM.' - Ciara Nolan, University of Ulster, UK 'The theoretical insights this new edition offers will raise the intellectual bar for HR studies, and, hopefully, it will prompt some serious thought among practitioners regarding what needs to change.' -Robert Storey, McMaster University, Canada 'The clarity is very good: the authors present complex ideas and models in 'normal' language. This is a very strong point!' - Willem de Nijs, Radboud University, the Netherlands
