Overview

A striking trend in economic development over the last 25 years is the rise in importance of the small firm. Focusing on the growth of small firms in specific regional economies, this book makes an important contribution to the literature on entrepreneurship and small enterprise development. Moving from an analysis of the simultaneous effect of growth including factors both internal and external to the firm - arguing that growth results from a complex but identifiable set of factors relating to the entrepreneur and the strategies he or she adopts - the authors explore regional disparities in growth, and make significant advances in the policy debate on how faster growth can be achieved.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A study focusing on small firms in the United Kingdom that, despite recessions and economic stagnation, have thrived in the last 25 years. Barkham (land management, U. of Reading) suggests that the small firms' adaptability is one factor in economic survival, and then extrapolates to identify other factors which contribute to viability such as owner decision making processes, and business strategies. Finally, he investigates regional discrepancies in growth and constraints to small business development. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
