Book News Annotation:

For students, researchers, and practitioners, Swanson (human resource development, U. of Texas at Tyler) and Holton (human resource and leadership development, Louisiana State U.) provide a textbook on human resource development (HRD) that focuses on the fundamentals and foundations of practice that does not focus on best practices. Instead, it addresses models, processes, history, theoretical and philosophical foundations, learning and performance paradigms and models, the role of HRD in high-level organizational and systems- level issues, and training and development and organization development. This edition has been revised, updated, and expanded to include new chapters on component HRD theories, policy and planning, technology, and globalization. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In this 2nd edition of Foundations of Human Resource Development, the leading scholars in the field present the essential guidebook for the human resource development (HRD) profession. Drawing on an extensive, rigorous knowledge base, Swanson and Holton update their classic single volume compilation of the foundational materials of the profession. Their work is supplemented with contributions from Richard W. Herling, Sharon S. Naquin, Wendy E. A. Ruona, Richard J. Torraco, and Karen E. Watkins.
