Show Summary Details


The book is intended to be an authoritative survey of recent academic research into entrepreneurship. It aims to meet the needs of those researching in all major academic fields to which entrepreneurship is relevant: industrial economics, business strategy, organizational behaviour, finance and venture capital, and business and economic history. The approach taken in this book construes entrepreneurship in terms of arbitrage, innovation, and risk-taking. Entrepreneurs specialize in taking difficult and complex decisions for which other people do not want to take responsibility.
