This book links together aspects of HRM with key concepts around
organisations; not many IHRM textbooks currently on the market
start from these 'basics', hence students find them difficult to
read and comprehend. Crawley, Swailes and Walsh bring together
everything that a student needs to know to get a complete picture
of this area. * Dr. Francesca Andreescu, Senior Lecturer in Human
Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour, Westminster

The examples used are up-to-date and are contextualised in a wide range of country contexts; this is really important given the cultural diversity of today's student cohorts. The book combines traditional and international aspects of the topic area, negating the need for more than one 'core' text. * Lynne Powell, Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader, Newcastle Business School *
I especially like the book's coverage of both macro and micro aspects, and the chapter on the dark-side - which is increasingly relevant nowadays. This is a reader-friendly text which is particularly suitable for overseas students. * Dr Hammad Akbar, Lecturer in Management and Course Director, MSc in International Human Resource Management, Norwich Business School *
