This 5th volume provides a timely survey of the most critical aspects of developmental entrepreneurship currently being discussed in the fields of entrepreneurship, sociology, and economics. Written by the top luminaries in the field, the fifteen articles presented here represent a combination of empirical research, theoretical insight and practical suggestions.
The volume focuses on issues related to entrenpreneurship and small business development within a global environment, especially under conditions of adversity, high environmental uncertainty, or weak institutional frameworks. It examines a broad set of issues, including entrepreneurial strategies and economic development in post-war and post-natural disaster environments, entrepreneurship and education within ethic and indigenous groups, the role of entrepreneurship as economic development mechanism within less developed and transitional economies, entrepreneurial activities within isolated environments, and the role of international institutions and law in small enterprise development.
