Globalization of business is forcing managers to grapple with complex issues as they seek to gain or sustain a competitive advantage.

The role of human resource management in this complex, ever-changing world is central to this book. This edition has addressed the increasing demand for added features and pedagogical aids, presented within a fresh and modern design that reflects its updated content. The book focuses on the needs of senior undergraduates and postgraduates on International Business or Human Resource Management courses. It is a core text that will be valuable to the studies of many students with a keen interest in this area.
