Description - Managing Human Resources in Africa by Ken N. Kamoche

As rival economies such as Asia mature, attention is now shifting to new frontiers, such as Africa. But academic debate too often neglects the complexities and diversity of this continent, and the challenges faced by both multinational companies working across Africa and domestic African companies, particularly those in the Human Resource (HR) field. Managing Human Resources in Africa is a refreshing new book that boldly tackles the HR challenges in countries right across Africa, examining the impact of contextual factors on the development of HR practices in Africa. Taking a regional approach to the subject, and featuring chapters on South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Mauritius, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Tunisia and Libya, this comprehensive study is written and edited by those with the knowledge and experience of the complexities of the continent. It offers a fresh perspective on a growing subject area, that shows readers not only how to develop techniques and practices that reflect the real needs of workers in Africa, but also provides a more balanced analysis of the area than they might be used to. Valuable not only to students and researchers in international management, human resources, organization theory and cross-cultural management, this topical and much-needed study is also critical reading for managers of multinational companies and domestic managers in Africa.
