Summary: Used by over 25,000 students across 130 countries, this bestselling text, written by leading international experts in each topic, retains its critical edge, academic rigour and breadth of coverage in the new fifth edition. The new edition reflects the contemporary debates and emerging issues in the field of International HRM, supplementing classic theories and models with recent research and international developments. Divided into three parts, the first section looks at the ways of thinking about IHRM theory and practice; the second section deals with multinational companies and how they manage their workforce around the world; the final section looks at both traditional and newer approaches to IHRM policies and practices. A selection of up-to-date examples from across the globe are used to support the text, including Uber's regulatory challenges across Europe, the gig economy, employment rights after Brexit, health insurance for part-timers in the US and EU, attracting and retaining 'millennials', the world's happiest and unhappiest countries, and CSR in Hong Kong. The book is complemented by free online resources for lecturers and students, including PowerPoint slides, additional case studies, SAGE video clips with critical thinking questions, free SAGE journal articles for every chapter, annotated useful weblinks, and suggested answers to self-assessment questions. Suitable reading for upper-undergraduate and masters level students on IHRM modules.Review: In the 5th edition of International Human Resource Management, Sebastian Reiche, Anne-Wil Harzing, and Helene Tenzer continue to set the standard for texts in the area. The volume is comprehensive in its coverage, bringing together an authoritative international author team. A key strength of the volume is balancing intellectual rigour and accessibility in the content and the authors achieve this in each of the chapters. This is a must read far anyone wishing to understand what is currently happening in international HRM. -- Professor David G. Collings Having taught international human resource management for many years, I have always struggled to find an appropriate text that is grounded in research and that is comprehensive in covering the complexities of managing people across borders. With this collection of chapters, each of which is written by experts in their respective fields, my quest is over! I especially like the emphasis given to the greater cultural, institutional, and organizational contexts in which MNCs operate as well as the challenges of managing expatriates and host country employees around the world. -- Dr Margaret A. Shaffer
