Written by an international team of experts, this text provides an integrated, research-based perspective on the management of people across borders. It begins by looking at how international human resource management (IHRM) has been conceptualized to date (strategically, comparatively, and organizationally); addresses expatriate management and employment practices; considers current practices, and examines the effects of globalization. A final section reviews how IHRM is addressing current issues such gender and work-life balance, regulation of employment, and social responsibility, sustainability, and diversity.

About the Author:

Anne-Wil Harzing is Professor of International Management at Middlesex University, London and visiting Professor of International Management at Tilburg University, the Netherlands. Anne-Wil’s research interests include IHRM, HQ-subsidiary relationships, transfer of HRM practices, the role of language in international business, the international research process, and the quality and impact of academic research.

Review:

The features which make the book uniquely helpful to readers are,  an overview of learning objectives, chapter outline, further reading, internet resources, case studies, self-assessment questions and companion website.... It goes to the credit of Harzing and Pinnington that the text at no place appears disjointed, although the book has contributions from a large number of authors. The book has a solid research base. It is very comprehensive with a broad and global coverage and provides a detailed overview of main ways that IHRM has been conceptualised and evolved over the years. It has maintained academic rigour and critical focus that have helped the authors to establish its reputation as the one of the most authoritative texts in international human resources management. This book has been very well received by teachers and students the world over.
