“The SAGE Handbook of Human Resource Management brings together contributions from international scholars in a broad and influential collection that combines both global and interdisciplinary perspectives.An indispensable resource for students and researchers in the field, the Handbook grounds the reader in the fundamentals of human resource management whilst contextualizing practice within wider theoretical considerations. Internationally focused chapters combine a critical overview with discussion of key debates and research, while unraveling important emerging interests through the lens of psychology, politics, sociology and economics. Organized into four sections, Part I frames and introduces the subject in general terms; Part II offers state-of-the-art commentary on fundamental principles; Part III discusses contemporary issues, and Part IV offers sector-specific analysis, including environments traditionally overlooked by HRM scholarship.” [from publisher web site]
