'...excellent coverage of the essential areas in human resource management today: contemporary human resource management, strategic HRM, and international HRM...a very readable and concise treatment...it is easy to highly recommend this book.' Professor Randall S. Schuler, Rutgers University * An accessible introduction to the key debates in human resource management * A fresh critique of taken-for-granted assumptions underpinning HRM * A pointer to future directions in HRM Ken Kamoche critically examines contemporary issues in the management of people. He reviews some of the significant themes that have shaped HRM as it has emerged during the course of the last century. The book identifies the definitive role of the tension between the drive for organizational performance and the 'humanization' of work. It argues, however, that our understanding of both strands is inadequate and poorly researched, leading to an incomplete picture of the dynamics of managing people. Understanding Human Resource Management also examines the relevance of such contemporary debates as the resource-based view, appropriation and globalization, and explores how researchers and practitioners can now move towards a more viable conception of HRM. 'At last a genuinely original new book on HRM that deals with the concerns of the 21st rather than the last century. Ken Kamoche unpacks some fascinating ideas about appropriation, the "community concept" and facilitating resourcefulness. He is to be congratulated on a real tour de force. A book not to be missed by anyone taking a critical perspective on HRM.' Professor Karen Legge, University of Warwick
