Professor Brewster has two new books published by Routledge
23 June 2014
Professor Chris Brewster, of International Business and Strategy, has had two new books published.
The first of his two books is called ‘Human Resource Management and the Institutional Perspective’ and has been published by Routledge. The book investigates the overlapping and distinct elements in work and employment relations both within and across country lines. Chris and his co-authors focus on intra-firm relations, internal diversity within varieties of capitalism, and the uneven and experimental nature of systemic change, whilst employing an impressive level of theoretical rigor and empirical evidence.
Chris worked closely with his co-authors Geoffrey Wood, Warwick Business School, and Michael Brookes, Middlesex University, and they have developed a valuable resource for students and academics alike.
Professor Brewster’s second new book ‘Managing Performance Abroad: A New Model for Understanding Expatriate Adjustment’ is also published by Routledge, and co-authored with Arno Haslberger, Middlesex University, and Thomas Hippler, University of Essex. This book promotes the concept that a thorough understanding of the adjustment of expatriates to their new environment is critical not only for selection and preparation of potential expatriates, but also for the management of expatriate performance. Chris and his co-authors summarise and build on what is known about expatriate management and adjustment, presenting a new approach to the adjustment process. His book is the first book solely dedicated to the matter of expatriate adjustment.
