Routledge Studies in Human Resource Development


About the Series

HRD theory is changing rapidly. Recent advances in theory and practice, in how we conceive of organizations and of the world of knowledge, have led to the need to reinterpret the field. This series aims to reflect and foster the development of HRD as an emergent discipline. Encompassing a range of different international, organizational, methodological and theoretical perspectives, the series promotes theoretical controversy and reflective practice.
