`Most books on IHRM-related topics address issues from the context of the multinational corporation; this book expands that perspective by looking at how different cultures tend to treat HR practices under conditions of globalization and within the domestic context. This book will be one that students and practitioners will want to have in their personal libraries' - Mark Mendenhall, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

`An interesting and original treatment of an increasingly important subject. Students and academics will welcome the extensive use of case material, as well as a geographical coverage that is significantly broader than is found in most
other books on this topic' - Professor Paul Blyton, Cardiff Business School.

`In today's global economy, understanding the international dimensions of human resource management could not be more important. Terence Jackson brings a clarity of ideas and a creativity that allows readers of his new book, International HRM, both to understand the complexities of global people management and to, in fact, be better managers' - Professor Nancy J. Adler, Faculty of Management, McGill University.

`In these days of increasing globalization of business, this book is a very valuable and timely addition to the Human Resource Management literature' - Rabindra N Kanungo, Professor Emeritus, McGill University.
