Handbook of Research on Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship: A Co-evolutionary View on Resource Management
Leo Paul Dana
Edward Elgar, 2007 - Business & Economics - 835 pages
This exhaustive, interdisciplinary Handbook explores the phenomena of immigration and ethnic minority entrepreneurship in light of marked changes since the mid-twentieth century and the advent of easier, more affordable travel and more open and integrated national economies. The international contributors, key experts in their respective fields, illustrate that myriad ethnic minorities exist across the globe, and that their entrepreneurship can and does significantly influence national economies. The contributors go on to promote our understanding of which factors make for successful entrepreneurship, and, perhaps more importantly, how negative political consequences that members of successful entrepreneurial ethnic minorities might face can be minimized. This extensive collection of current research on entrepreneurship in minority communities is a welcome addition to the growing literature and will be warmly welcomed by those with an interest in entrepreneurship, sociology and business in general.
