Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Review of previous edition: Bart Nooteboom has written a remarkable and valuable book. In it he draws from and weaves together conceptions and empirical research findings from a wide range of fields. The scholarship is a model of what interdisciplinary work should be. Nooteboom is concerned with knowledge, learning, and innovation, at a number of different levels - the individual, the firm, and society as a whole - and his work sheds a penetrating light on all of these. A reader interested in any or all of these subjects is bound to come away from this book with important new insights and understandings."--Richard R. Nelson, Columbia University
