Summary and Info
The Handbook of Entrepreneurship Research: Disciplinary Perspectives strives to increase awareness and stimulate research in numerous important topics in the field, particularly those underdeveloped areas of study with more relevance to scholarship and theory than to the practice of entrepreneurship. For example, less research has focused on the importance of the macroeconomic environment to firm founding, on social and kinship ties as sources of entrepreneurial activity, and the interaction between institutions and entrepreneurship. We do so by drawing attention to the relevant research in the disciplines of economics and sociology. This volume of the handbook hopes to begin to bridge the gap between the research in entrepreneurship and the core disciplines by introducing views of entrepreneurship from disciplinary perspectives. As such, this volume of the handbook is intended to complement and build on the first volume by focusing on a select set of issues and examining them in an in-depth manner.
