Reviews

"Human capital is admittedly the most important resource for all types of organizations and, indeed, for the economic development of countries. Although there is a fair amount of research focused on human capital, more is needed. This volume extends the frontiers of our knowledge of human capital by providing a multi-disciplinary and multi-level view of this critical resource. I commend this volume to all scholars interested in the advancement of our understanding of human capital." - Michael Hitt, Joe B. Foster '56 Chair in Business Leadership, Texas A&M University, USA

"Strategy, human resource, and economic scholars all recognize the centrality of human capital in understanding how organizations operate. The importance of human capital in service industries where a firm's competitive advantages 'go home' every night is obvious. But human capital is no less important in manufacturing. This book applies the latest thinking about human capital to develop a multi-level approach to research on this important phenomenon. Those interested in the future of human capital research will find these essays fascinating." - Jay B. Barney, Presidential Professor of Strategic Management, Lassonde Chair of Social Entrepreneurship, The University of Utah, USA

"This informative volume, edited by Meir Russ, tackles the multifaceted topic of human capital in organizations. Human capital may well be the most poorly conceptualized and assessed, yet vitally important ingredient for organizational innovation and success. Although there are many other books that examine human capital, the multi-disciplinary breadth (economics, finance, accounting, behavioral, human resources management, and systems) and multi-level scope (micro meso macro) of this one sets it apart. It is highly recommended." - Steve W. J. Kozlowski, Michigan State University, USA
