Praise for the third edition:

'The features which make the book uniquely helpful to readers are,  an overview of learning objectives, chapter outline, further reading, internet resources, case studies, self-assessment questions and companion website…. It goes to the credit of Harzing and Pinnington that the text at no place appears disjointed, although the book has contributions from a large number of authors. The book has a solid research base. It is very comprehensive with a broad and global coverage and provides a detailed overview of main ways that IHRM has been conceptualised and evolved over the years. It has maintained academic rigour and critical focus that have helped the authors to establish its reputation as the one of the most authoritative texts in international human resources management. This book has been very well received by teachers and students the world over.' - The Tribune
