Review quote

'This excellent book provides students and practitioners with an invaluable primer on what strategic human resource management is, why it's important, and what to look for when applying it. Perhaps most importantly, "Strategy and Human Resource Management" explains why managers need to formulate human resource management policies and practices within the framework of the firm's strategic plans.'
- Dr Gary Dessler, Founding Professor, College of Business, Florida International University, UK 'Peter Boxall and John Purcell have written a book that represents scholarship at its best. It does a masterful job of mapping the field of strategic HRM and explaining its role in organization success. Their book takes the research and practice literatures, integrates them, and crafts them into a work that is informative, engaging and relevant for anyone with an interest in strategic HRM.'
-          Professor Barry Gerhart, Director, Pro
