Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'This is an exciting and thoughtful new look at entrepreneurship, combining a wide range of perspectives. It is an excellent introduction to the literature and debates on entrepreneurship. The book is open in its definitions, which means it can and does encompass a broad discussion of the nature of innovation, the role of venture capital, and the history of diaspora entrepreneurship. The editors and contributors are to be congratulated for an outstanding collection.' - Professor Mira Wilkins, Department of Economics, Florida International University, USA

'Mirroring entrepreneurship itself, this book alerts one to the gap between adventurous interrogations and concrete data. We need more of this

to make progress on a difficult but important subject, and they (Cassis and Pepelasis Minoglou) have led the way.' - Professor Leslie Hannah, University of Tokyo, Japan
