I found the book explained a few concepts well in addition to the core texts the students are expected to read. For example, that of the resource based view and how it integrates with strategy, decision process and cognition. It also had a good focus on developments in industrial relations (now employee relations) which is a good introduction on this topic for my 3rd year students. Plenty of examples provided and some good reference to other useful texts.
Chosen as recommended reading, as provides an excellent source of critical readings to complement the core text.
Excellent piece of work and this book should be available to all HRM students
Offers a more global perspective in a timely edition. The articulate and thoughtful writing in this text invites students, professionals and sometimes faculty to put aside old mental models of what HR is and can be.
Good theoretical and practical underpinnings.
I like the book a lot. However, you cannot use it as an essential book for the basic HRM course. It has four parts, HRM and knowledge management, HRM and firm performance, new organizational forms, and strategic HRM in practice. I would absolutely recommend this book as "essential" for emerging popular master courses (in many universities nowadays) - "Emerging Issues in HRM". For such a course I would adopt this book as the main one.
