Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This fourth edition of Readings and Cases in International Human Resource Management by Mendenhall, Oddou and Stahl is an excellent collection of some of best and most useful cases and readings for the field. The authors are extremely well-known and provide a great deal of their own materials as well as materials prepared by other outstanding scholars from around the world. This book, along with its vast amount of ancillary teaching support, is sure to make it much easier to get students engaged and exciting about learning international human resource management.' - Randall S. Schuler, Rutgers University, USA/GZBA Zurich, Switerland

'Mendenhall, Oddou and Stahl have assembled a great set of readings and cases that bring to life the challenges of international human resource management in this age of globalization. This book will be the indispensable backbone for teaching in this domain.' - Paul Evans, INSEAD

Mendenhall (U. of Tennessee-Chattanooga) and Oddou (Utah State U.) have assembled cases from prominent authors and researchers for use either as a core-text in a case-oriented course or in conjunction with a text on principles, especially to help a traditional course meet requirements for an international perspective. No dates are noted for the earlier editions; the third includes some new readings. There is no index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
