This edited collection presents the latest research on the international aspects of entrepreneurship. The volume is divided into two sections. Part One looks at conceptual issues in entrepreneurship, including discussion on trust and the entrepreneur, the importance of technology management and the facets of new business growth. In Part Two the discussion centres around a wide range of international case studies, including the role of networking in Japan, foreign direct investment in research and development as entrepreneurship, and the brewing industry in the UK. ... The contributions illustrate the evolution of focus from the study of individual entrepreneurs, firms and countries to the embedding of such players in the wider context of organizational, regional and global environments and the interactions between them.
