The 71 previously published articles collected in this 4-volume reference represent seminal writings in human resource management (HRM), according to the editor. The material is grouped into 3 areas: HRM versus personnel management, the added value of HRM, and international differences in HRM practices. The articles are further divided into 15 topics, with the first 18 providing a background to the history of the field, its theoretical approaches, and the implications of an international perspective. HRM practices and procedures are the topic of 35 chapters, with articles that address such issues as selection and socialization of employees, performance measurement and management, teamworking, leadership, and innovation. Controversies and future trends are addressed in the final section, with several articles devoted to questions of the utility of HRM and ways this can be measured. The articles are presented as they originally appeared, without any introductory material from the editor, however the articles were selected for clarity of writing as well as content and will be accessible to graduate students. The 4-volume collection, which is not indexed, will be of interest to a broad readership, both academic and professional, in fields that include business, management, organizational psychology, and applied psychology.
