Product description

Review


Intellectually rigorous, accessible and comprehensive - it ticks all the boxes for an excellent textbook. The book provides a critical introduction to the field of HRD, providing a stimulating review of contemporary debates in the field, and a wealth of references. The activities, review questions and examples make it a useful teaching resource. Clare Valentin, HRD Programme Director, The University of Edinburgh, UK.

This is a great resource for lecturers and students alike. It is engagingly written by academics who are in touch with practice and who recognise the need to give undergraduates and professional students both a language and understanding of the strategic aspects of HRD and the ability to deal with the nuance and ambiguity which HRD entails. - Lisa Anderson, Lecturer in Management Education, University of Liverpool Management School, UK
 
A comprehensive and authoritative overview of current topics, debates, and trends in human resource development… A well written textbook that should appeal to HRD practitioners and students alike. - Rob F. Poell, Professor of HRD, Tilburg University, Netherlands 
 
This excellent book provides a critical exploration of the key themes in the field of Human Resource Development in a challenging yet pragmatic way, and will have wide appeal. Susan Kirk, Researcher and Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management, Nottingham Trent University, UK
  
Engaging, topical, full of practical illustrations and far reaching in scope: this book is an excellent new resource for undergraduate teaching and professional students alike. - Dr Clare Rigg, School of Business and Social Sciences, Institute of Technology Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland
 
The book is a very important contribution to the field of HRD. It signals a number of useful trajectories along which HRD may develop in the future. The book is a model of conceptual clarity and it achieves a fine balance between description and analysis. A fine achievement indeed. - Thomas N. Garavan, Journal of European Industrial Training.
