'This Handbook is a timely, impressive, and well-organized contribution, with excellent authors from around the world. In particular, I appreciate the integration of two key elements: extensive consideration of the theories and research methods that serve as the foundations for the study of CHRM; and, specific consideration of a wide range of HRM practices and a wide range of country and regional contexts. The Handbook can be an invaluable resource for scholarship and for educational purposes.' -- David Allen, Texas Christian University, Neeley School of Business, US
'The Handbook of Research on Comparative Human Resource Management, Second Edition is an important and comprehensive resource for researchers and students seeking to better understand the contextual challenges and difference in human resource systems, strategies, and practices across countries. The Handbook is written by an impressive collection of thought leaders in the field of comparative CHRM, each offering cutting-edge insights on regional, functional, or strategic issues.' -- Paula Caligiuri, Northeastern University, US
