In Regional Cultures, Managerial Behavior, and Entrepreneurship: An International Perspective, edited by Joseph W. Weiss, a group of international business and development specialists tries to isolate and analyze the subject. Offering both empirical analysis and experience-based case studies of eight nations--including the U.S. (Silicon Valley), Catalonia, France, Finland, Switzerland, India, West Germany and Belize--the authors explore the ways in which regional culture influences and is influenced by industrial and management practices. Entrepreneurial Economy Review

Although the spread of industrialization in both developed and less-developed regions has obvious importance worldwide, no systematic research has examined the reasons why entrepreneurship has succeeded in some settings and failed in others. The present volume, written by an international group of business and development specialists, is the first to isolate and analyze this subject. Offering both empirical analysis and experience-based case studies of eight nations, the contributors explore the ways in which regional culture influences and is influenced by industrial and management practices.
