It attempts a synthesis of what has emerged from recent research on the a€˜harmonious societya€™. These contributions from authors based in universities in eight countries, in Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, United Kingdom and USA, cover a wide range of research on HRM, from the micro- to the macro-.
