By problematising core HR topics and presenting significant new developments in the field, this engaging textbook will enable students to develop a nuanced and critical approach to HRM. It integrates students’ understanding of the key operational aspects of HRM with the wider institutional, social, political and economic contexts in which they occur, covering important and emerging topics such as intersectionality, wellbeing, international migration, globalisation and corporate governance. Theoretically-rigorous and rich in pedagogy, this textbook will hone students’ critical thinking skills, allowing them to confront higher level problems faced in HR and deal with complex real-world HR situations. A range of topical international case studies – ranging from iPhone factories in China to contemporary US politics – places HR issues in a comparative, global context.

This is an essential textbook for upper-undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students studying contemporary or critical issues in HRM. It can also be used as a supplementary text by those wanting to deepen their knowledge of HRM and by practitioners keen to understand how core HRM topics intersect with wider contemporary and global issues.
