Entrepreneurship and the Growth of Firms

Entrepreneurship and the Growth of Firms

by Harold C. Livesay

Editorial Reviews

In his introduction the editor discusses the definition and evolution of entrepreneurship and how entrepreneurs are perceived and studied. His interest is in the entrepreneur and entrepreneurship as concepts systematically defined in terms of behavior abilities, and historical impact upon firms, capitalism, and economic change. The selected readings--27 in the first volume and 40 in the second--are geared toward understanding what role the individual plays in the creation of business, and with what consequences. Papers are grouped in sections on the emergence of the concepts of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship; motivation, innovation, and performance; success, mobility, and the social milieu; entrepreneurship among the industrial powers; corporate "intrapreneuring"; and entrepreneurship and technology. Indexed by name only. Distributed by Ashgate. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
