DESCRIPTION : Entrepreneurship can, at times, seem like a veritable jungle where finding one's way can prove to be difficult. This book functions as a map locating the most important issues: those where an acceptable consensus already exists, and those that remain open to discussion. In so doing, we have presented the accounts of distinguished explorers in their own words.

DESCRIPTION : . . . a reflective and scholarly work that presents exciting and challenging views to mainstream entrepreneurship. . . The four books comprising the series would certainly be a valuable addition to any entrepreneurship library. However, each book also stands alone as an individual purchase. Lorraine Warren, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research The narrative and flow of the book is superb and very interesting to read. The book is well edited and thought provoking which makes it an interesting read. Vanessa Ratten, Journal of Enterprising Communities: People and Places in the Global Economy This book the third in the Movements in Entrepreneurship series examines entrepreneurship as a societal phenomenon. It provides an in-depth study of the social aspects of entrepreneurship, illustrating how entrepreneurship affects society. The need to move beyond economy to disclose entrepreneurship in its societal forms is demonstrated, as is the relevance of our understanding of entrepreneurship as a societal phenomenon. The contributors show that entrepreneurship is a society-creating force and as such, it evokes new questions for entrepreneurship research and attempts to engage with new theoretical formulations. They begin with discussions on early Schumpeter and a rhetorical analysis of the current academic literature on social entrepreneurship. They go on to present myriad contextual examples of how entrepreneurship can shape social change, and indicate how this is initiated through various social settings, relationships and communities. Through rich empirical work this book explores the social of social entrepreneurship and in doing so shows us how entrepreneurship is at home where society is created. As such, it will prove a fascinating read for academics, researchers and students with an interest in entrepreneurship, sociology and economic sociology.

DESCRIPTION : This book presents a number of cases - both in centrally planned and market economy systems - where the culture and practice of entrepreneurship were successfully introduced into the structure and activities of public enterprises. The book shows how sponsorship can help promote both public and private economic initiaitives by either turning the public enterprise into an entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial organization, or by helping small private business in the start-up stage.

DESCRIPTION : Developed for courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level "Innovation and Entrepreneurship" is an accessible introductory text written primarily for students of business and management studies. The book is also suitable for engineering students studying courses in business and management. Contemporary issues in both innovation and entrepreneurship are used to engage and excite students, and lead them to the relevant theory, models and lessons. The authors have created a new text which includes: Fully integrated contemporary themes in innovation, such as sustainability, social entrepreneurship and creating new ventures.A focus on the role of individual entrepreneurship and organizational innovation in private and public services.Contemporary cases from areas including new media, computer gaming, internet services, and public and social innovation cases. """Innovation and Entrepreneurshipis positioned well for the undergraduate level and also draws in new key areas such as innovation systems and socio-technical aspects of innovation. Students can be shown that innovation is not just about technology development. The provision of integrated modern examples for illustrative and case study use is also helpful." --Dr Paul Harborne, Senior Research Fellow, Cass Business School, UK "An excellent primer in entrepreneurial innovation. From principles to application, this book aggregates best practices for practical application; building a solid foundation from their own vast expertise, Bessant and Tidd educate the reader with action oriented, practical approaches to bringing innovation and entrepreneurship together in the real world." --Charlie Nagelschmidt, Associate Professor, Business & Graduate Faculty, Champlain College, USA "This book is very well balanced, with chapters on both manufacturing and service sectors. The chapters on sustainability and economic development are timely. Most books on innovation are excessively concerned with the 'how' of innovation. There is always a need to provoke thought on the 'why?' - what economic, social and environmental goals does innovation serve?" --Ken Green, Professor of Environmental Innovation Management, Manchester Business School, UK "The inclusion of chapters on entrepreneurship and individual innovation fills an important gap in the market for undergraduate textbooks that combine theories of innovation management. It also differentiates from other textbooks by adding contemporary issues on innovation as sustainability and a greater focus on service innovation." --Dr Dolores Anon Higon, Lecturer in Economics, Aston Business School UK www.wileyeurope.com/college/bessant Fully integrated with further resources that can be found on a companion website, Innovation and Entrepreneurship is also supported by a complete online course in WileyPLUS, which includes an enhanced electronic version of the text and numerous assignments and case studies with online marking and feedback.

DESCRIPTION : . . . this is a single-authored book; a series of academic papers (some original, some fairly recently published), neatly set around a unifying theme and tied into a comprehensive argument. . . once you have shared Davidsson s insights, stumblings, joys, and humor over some 240 pages, it feels as if he were part of your family. The book sets off with a very clear and helpful introduction that lays out the entrepreneurship phenomenon . . . This book is value adding for a fairly wide academic audience: essentially all those interested in diverse areas of entrepreneurship and innovation, or in questions of methodology, research design and interpretation of, ultimately, any complex, fast paced behavioural and social realities. It does not give us all the answers, thank heavens, but it certainly asks some excellent questions. . . the novice scholar, will find some welcome foothold and guidance. . . this book is simply fun to read; when could you last say that of a research methodology book? Jacqueline Fendt, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research Unquestionably, Per Davidsson can be considered a leading voice of authority on the study of entrepreneurship as an academic discipline. . . From the initial introduction through to the latter discussions, one aspect of this textbook that immediately makes itself apparent to the reader is Davidsson s markedly personal and deeply engaging writing style. The Entrepreneurship Research Challenge is notably distinct from many of the generic business research methods texts in that it does not attempt to portray an objective toolbox of methodological choices. Instead, the style is such that the reader feels that Davidsson truly wishes for his audience to learn from his unique experiences, opinions and even mistakes. . . the practical advice provided is both insightful and useful. . . this text is not simply about how to go through the motions of the research process. Instead, it makes a very well reasoned attempt to form a basis for the discipline as a whole as well as to address methods to overcome unique challenges while promoting research output that is useful. For these reasons it should be considered essential reading for any entrepreneurship scholar, and in particular, for those at the early stages of their research career. Russell Matthews, International Small Business Journal Entrepreneurship is an emerging, dynamic and to a considerable extent, unpredictable phenomenon. Thus, it makes for a challenging research subject. In this book, one of the most experienced empiricists in the field has collected some of his most important ideas on how improved conceptualization and research design can make this challenge more manageable. Per Davidsson addresses questions such as: What precisely is entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship research? What unique contribution can it make compared with research in other fields? Conversely, how can scholars with different disciplinary backgrounds best contribute to the study of entrepreneurship? What does the emergent and highly diverse nature of entrepreneurship imply for research design? And what is required from entrepreneurship researchers and practitioners in order for the research to make strong contributions to business and policy practice? This comprehensive, in-depth account of how the emergence of new entrepreneurial activity can be studied will be warmly welcomed by researchers and academics in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovation and methodology and research design.

DESCRIPTION : The Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education is well worth reading and both editions are excellent volumes for all of us involved and interested in the debate on how to bring entrepreneurship education forward and whether to create a distinctive domain of entrepreneurship studies. Domingo Ribeiro Soriano, Academy of Management Learning & Education . . . a commendable source of reference for entrepreneurship education researchers and practitioners alike, and would make a worthy addition to a library s collection. David Douglas, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research In this, the second volume of the Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education, leading international scholars highlight the unique characteristics and rich variety of research in entrepreneurship education. They adopt several different perspectives, focusing on key issues and significant developments in the field, and highlighting emergent new insights. The 35 contributors span 11 countries and three continents, demonstrating not only the richness but also the complexity of the field in terms of culture, geography and institutional, ethical and political systems. The Handbook is intended to collectively assist entrepreneurship educators in developing new programmes and pedagogical approaches that take into account the richness and diversity of these multiple perspectives. Highlighting the unique characteristics of research in entrepreneurship education, this Handbook will be of great interest to entrepreneurship researchers, academics and students wishing to understand the unique notions of entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial learning, which are often quite distinct from current practical views. The companion volume, Handbook of Research in Entrepreneurship Education, Volume 1: A General Perspective, showcases the nature and benefits of the new wave in entrepreneurship education emerging as a result of revised academic programmes developed to reflect new forms of entrepreneurship.
