This is the first study undertaken with senior female managers in Europe, as most prior research with female managers has come from North America. European studies have largely concentrated on male international managers. The study makes a contribution primarily to the literature on international human resource management, while also contributing to the literature on women in management and career theory. This book will be of benefit to women in management both in their home and host organisations, and will also provide valuable information to human resource managers. The book highlights the strategies these fifty successful managers have used to break the glass ceiling and glass border."--Jacket." ;
