This informative text provides an analysis of the ten most important themes in European HRM. It takes a thematic yet critical approach and includes three distinct country examples in each chapter, paying special attention to dilemmas, controversies, paradoxes and problems in the field. The major themes covered here are the role of the institutional context, the importance of various organizational forms for HRM, the roles and contributions of HRM within the organization and the impact of societal macro-trends on HRM.
Written and edited by leading European authorities, this text is essential reading for all those studying or working in HRM in Europe, and allows an exciting synthesis of theory and practice, illustrated with living case studies.

'There has long been a need for texts describing the practice of Human Resource Management in Europe. This new book goes a long way toward fulfilling that need. Larsen and Mayrhofer have put together a great set of authors and chapters presenting a wide spectrum of topics and models on European Human Resource Management. I very much like the style and topics and for sure will now use this text for coverage of European HRM.' - Dennis R. Briscoe, International HRM, University of San Diego, USA
