Concise in nature, this book is particularly suitable for modular courses.  It also meets the needs of those seeking to qualify as members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).Based on the successful Essence of Human Resource Management by the same authors, this concise text provides a rigorous, well-informed but highly accessible introduction to the theory and practice of HRM.  Careful attention has been paid to integrating both the strategic and international aspects of this subject throughout the text (as opposed to treating these topics in isolation). Through the use of various mini-cases, and other learning features, the authors facilitate the application of theory to practice, leaving the reader with a solid understanding of both the theoretical and applied nature of the HRM.
