  • Challenges to national traditions and changes in national systems
  • Debates and controversy around key issues in International HRM.

  • Clear, cohesive themes that run throughout the book and show the big picture.
  • Broad depth of coverage of multinational companies, reflecting current hot topics.
  • Real life case studies throughout, showing how the theory applies in practice.
