In the study of entrepreneurship there has been little interaction between economic theory and history. For the first time a single volume combines analyses of leading specialists from both disciplines. It examines the ways theory and historical evidence can be linked, how economic theory can contribute to improving the historical interpretation of entrepreneurship, and significant thematic aspects of the history of entrepreneurship. Conceptual analyses are fused with historical archive-based work, reflecting the current state of the art and new directions in research.

Industry Reviews

'This is an exciting and thoughtful new look at entrepreneurship, combining a wide range of perspectives. It is an excellent introduction to the literature and debates on entrepreneurship. The book is open in its definitions, which means it can and does encompass a broad discussion of the nature of innovation, the role of venture capital, and the history of diaspora entrepreneurship. The editors and contributors are to be congratulated for an outstanding collection.' - Professor Mira Wilkins, Department of Economics, Florida International University, USA

'Mirroring entrepreneurship itself, this book alerts one to the gap between adventurous interrogations and concrete data. We need more of this

to make progress on a difficult but important subject, and they (Cassis and Pepelasis Minoglou) have led the way.' - Professor Leslie Hannah, University of Tokyo, Japan
