'For those looking for insights into the status of a ‘European model’ of international HRM, this is the book to read. The editors present a comprehensive account of developments in European IHRM following the economic crisis, written by a wide range of leading academics. They present an informed analysis of the current challenges facing HRM in Europe including different responses to the economic crisis, migration, flexible working, and generational differences in an aging workforce as well as challenges to employee interests. A comprehensive framework utilising a macro – mezzo – micro perspective emphasises the importance of institutional issues and stakeholder interests. The distinctive approaches to HRM in Europe of MNCs from different countries such as the USA, Japan and Korea, compared with those originating in Europe, are fully addressed as are specific HRM practices such as selection and performance management that can be affected by European institutional arrangements. The comprehensive and contemporary coverage of this book mark it out as a leader in the field of European IHRM.' - Professor David Guest, King’s College, UK
