Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This new edition of Strategic Human Resource Management is, in global terms, the best book in the field of strategic HRM I have ever read. I wouldn't have expected less from two of the world's leading HR academics. Randall Schuler and Susan Jackson have done it again, and if there was an Academy Award for HR books internationally, this would be the overall winner by far. It is a must read for those interested in people management." Cary Cooper, Lancaster University Management School
