Introduction: Macro Talent Management in Developed Markets: Foundations for a Developing Field (Paul Sparrow, Vlad Vaiman, Randall Schuler and David G. Collings)
Edited and authored by the best and most well known researchers in the field of human resource management (HRM), this series of books offers students accessible, coordinated and comprehensive textbooks on global HRM. To be used individually or together, these books cover the main bases of the area, including titles on global alliances, corporations, leadership, legal systems, staffing and compensation systems.
The series is organized into three strands: the first reflects general issues of global HRM; the second more specific HR functions in a global context; and the third, comparative human resource management.
Taking an expert look at an increasingly important area of global business, this is a groundbreaking new series that answers a real need for serious textbooks on global HRM.
Dedication: The late Professor Michael Poole was one of the founding series editors, and Profesors Schuler, Jackson, and Sparrow wish to dedicate the series to his memory.
