Editorial Reviews

'...the book does offer compelling snapshots of the complex and evolving relationship between HRM and the public sector. As such it will be useful both to researchers developing new lines of academic inquiry and to public sector practitioners seeking insights and solutions to the real-life HRM challenges that they face. In both these respects Human Resource Management in the Public Sector is recommended reading.' Calum Macleod, Queen Margaret University, UK
