DESCRIPTION

This core textbook 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, the text examines the emergence and development of entrepreneurship as an academic discipline and takes a critical look at the varying positions in the field as well as their overall contribution to entrepreneurship as a whole. Through twelve chapters, written from such wide ranging perspectives as feminism, psychology, institutionalism, critical realism and evolution, the book provides a clear and accessible framework that encourages students' critical engagement with the subject.This is an essential textbook for upper level undergraduate and postgraduate students of entrepreneurship.
