Frontiers in Entrepreneurship
Te series Perspectives in Entrepreneurship: A Research Companion provides an authoritative overview of specialised themes in entrepreneurship. Each of the four books presents the conceptual framework and foundations underlying a specialist feld of scholarship in entrepreneurship. Te series is inspired by the dearth of higher-level texts available in South Africa, failing to encapsulate the rigorous research evident in the growing feld of entrepreneurship internationally. Te content is driven by a judicious selection and interpretation of key knowledge set in context by introducing and delineating major topics previously not discussed in-depth in traditional entrepreneurial texts. A blend of theoretical and empirical evidence is presented that collectively demonstrates the convergence of thinking on a particular theme. Identifying and evaluating the most seminal and impactful scholarly research on diferent subject areas where entrepreneurship is at the core, serves to achieve this convergence. By applying a theoretical lens to central issues ‘about entrepreneurship’ rather than focusing on practical issues of ‘how to’, the series has a conceptual outlook with specialist areas in detailed narrative. Te book is deliberately structured to add value to learners who are undertaking secondary programmes in entrepreneurship by building on basic entrepreneurship principles and theory. Te series builds on fundamental entrepreneurial texts. Each book provides a valuable knowledge base for educators, third year and postgraduate students, researchers, policy makers, and service providers.
