A Contemporary & Global Approach

Second Edition
Additional resources:


March 2024 | 360 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This popular and well received standard text on Entrepreneurship has been completely revised and updated for the second edition. The text retains the favourably reviewed features of the first edition which include the importance of context, diversity and differing international entrepreneurial practice, yet is underpinned by coverage and application of relevant theory. In particular, the text now contains important and entirely new sections on entrepreneurship in the face of multiple global crises, evidence on entrepreneurial resilience, new case study material on examples of international entrepreneurship from developing countries including a new section on Entrepreneurship in Sub-Saharan Africa, new case material on ‘clean technology’ entrepreneurship and on green finance, and a new chapter on Indigenous Entrepreneurship. All chapters have been completely updated to reflect increased diversity and the place of Entrepreneurship in the context of multiple global crises.

The text retains the pedagogic features of the first edition which are consistent throughout the text and include learning outcomes, boxed case studies with discussion questions, policy and practical issues, summaries of each chapter, recommended reading and suggested assignments. The text is complemented by online support material for tutors.
