A valuable part of any business library is an anthology, or compilation, that brings together views and expertise from a large number of experts.

This type of book serves as an overview of a field or topic, providing a great introduction for readers new to the subject area or, for those already well versed in the topic, a road map to emerging themes and to expert sources who have written other in-depth books and articles.

HR readers will find a lot to think about in these four compilations that survey the future of the field including best practices in leadership and change, organizational development and ways HR management is evolving to capitalize on, and respond to, electronic HR systems and capabilities.
