The book takes a cross-cultural approach to the study and practice of human resource management by examining the contributions of different cultures in interaction and discussing academic issues within the context of actual companies and real cultures. Each chapter provides real-life cases together with sample questions that will help readers to draw conclusions from the cases. Each chapter ends with a section on various management implications, together with a section providing useful pointers for students' further research.

International HRM will be recommended reading on courses in international management, international human resource management and cross-cultural management, for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and MBA students.
