Reviews

'There is little doubt that Briscoe, Schuler and Tarique have set themselves an ambitious task in covering so much ground in this text. However, they have delivered on their objectives and produced an authoritative and comprehensive volume which reflects cutting-edge thinking and practice in the field of IHRM […] It will be a valuable addition to the bookshelf of any reflective practitioner and will no doubt be widely adopted on IHRM courses across the globe.' - David G. Collings, The International Journal of Human Resource Management, Vol. 23, No. 7, April 2012, 1507–1511
