DESCRIPTION

How should we think about entrepreneurship? Should we focus on the psychology of people who become entrepreneurs or consider the groups that people belong to? Should we emphasize the incentives, context and environment that lead people to become entrepreneurial? This book presents different ways of thinking about entrepreneurship: instead of topics such as finance or opportunities, the book focuses on perspectives or ways of seeing. Written by leading experts, Perspectives in Entrepreneurship examines the emergence and development of entrepreneurship as an academic discipline. The book takes a critical look at the varying positions in the field and their overall contribution to entrepreneurship as a whole. Perspectives in Entrepreneurship is an essential text for upper level undergraduate and postgraduate students of entrepreneurship.
