'Sparrow and his colleagues have provided much more than just another international HRM text. This book hinges on a deep research-based appreciation of the complexity of managing human resources in transnational firms in turbulent times. The authors offer a robust analysis of the possibilities, practicalities and pitfalls of strategic integration in a multi-polar world.'

Peter Scott, University of Portsmouth, UK

'This text is a welcomed and timely contribution in the area of global HRM. It has the appropriate balance of theory, empirical studies and real-life cases. Having a global focus, it is imperative that a book of such standing represents the diverse global community in the use of studies and real-case examples. It will arm students, particularly undergraduate and postgraduate, with the knowledge of contemporary and challenging issues facing companies today. It is a must-have for anyone involved in the area of globalisation and HRM.'
