Political economy has been at the core of entrepreneurship research since its conception. Although the entrepreneur is frequently regarded as the key figure in the capitalist system,
academic research in economics has for a long time overlooked the entrepreneur in its analyses of growth. In terms of political economy this neglect has been even more glaring. These volumes bring together the most important contributions from a very scattered and disparate research field. The collection provides scholars, postgraduates and students of economics and
entrepreneurship with a systematic exposition of a largely undefined field of research.
