    This book presents a comprehensive analysis of the similarities and differences of contemporary human resource management systems, processes and practices in the two increasingly important economic great powers in Asia. It covers the full range of human resource management activities, including recruitment, retention, performance management, renumeration, and career development, discusses changing industrial relations systems, and sets the subject in its historical, social and cultural contexts. It examines newly emerging strategies, and asssesses the extent to which human resource management systems in the two countries are coverging or diverging.

    ‘I would like to recommend strongly "New Models of HRM in China and India". The book highlights the enormous changes in global economic power and influence and the major lessons for international human resource management stemming from these developments. This comparative work is especially valuable for highlighting patterns of continuity and change in these two countries and for drawing out the fundamentally important implications for theory’. - Michael Poole is Professor of HRM, Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK.

    'With the re-emergence of China and India - the world's two most populous nations - in the global economy, it is imperative that researchers and practitioners have an accurate understanding of human resource management in both countries. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the similarities and differences between these two countries and presents a new model of human resource management that can explain more adequately the dynamics and challenges associated with these two emerging giants. It is a must read for all who seek further insights on managing and doing business in China and India'. - Rosalie L.

    This book provides an excellent basis for a new understanding of emerging human resource management in the two largest countries in the world. A central issue highlighted is the inability of Western HRM Models to incorporate the diversity of HRM systems and practices in multiple organizational types in both countries and the need for more scholarships on variants of indigenous models of HRM’. - Sarosh Kurivalla, Professor of Industrial Relations, Asian Studies and Public Affairs, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA.

    ‘Since the global attention has shifted to China and India, this is the finest book I have read on how the management of the people resource has been contributing to the mystery of the emerging "Asian Century." Being some of the leading global thinkers on the subject, the authors have demonstrated amazing clarity and panache in identifying and discussing comparative HRM issues in the two countries. The book provides a powerful framework of the evolving HRM models in China and India, with rich combinations of strategic and operational insights. Corporates working in and dealing with these countries, and scholars studying and researching Comparative HRM issues in Asia, will benefit immensely by reading this long awaited book’. - Debi S.

    ‘This book has made a timely and cutting-edge contribution to the field of human resource management (HRM). It provides fresh insights into a wide range of topics in HRM in the two largest emerging economies, China and India. Given the arrival of the Asian century, and the rapidly increasing impact of China and India on global economic development, the dynamic HRM architectures and models detailed in this book is critical and valuable. This is because the book has captured the essence of changes as well as future development trends of HRM in these two countries and their multinationals - highly recommended for researchers, practitioners and students interested in the field of HRM in the two resurgent powers’. - Dr Cherrie Jiuhua Zhu Professor of Human Resource Management and Chinese Studies, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
