In a globalized economy, students of human resource management (HRM) must not only be knowledgeable about the best and universally applicable HRM theories and practices that are available, but also be informed about the contextual conveniences and limitations that may affect the actual operations of HRM in a specific country or region. HRM is a highly context-bound subject matter because different countries have different laws and regulations governing the employment of their people. A HRM textbook can only be as good as how it has adapted the best theories and practices it has identified to fit the local context. To strike a balance between the ideal scenario and the current state of knowledge dissemination in HRM, we have updated Human Resource Management: An Asia Edition to highlight universally usable HRM theories and practices sourced from leading research and reports that may be applicable to HRM in Asia. In this new edition, we want to show case studies from countries such as Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and China to facilitate student discussions.
