'Despite their minimal application of research and development, industries such as manufacturing, food, and publishing occupy an important role in production expansion and employment opportunities. The editors of Knowledge-Intensive Entrepreneurship in Low-Tech Industries point out the alarming gap that characterizes today's research in regard to industrial innovation and transformation. The book provides detailed studies that explain KIE activities at multiple levels as it emphasizes the origins, characteristics, strategies, organization, and performance of such activities. . . the book should raise significant interest among researchers, scholars, advisors and policy makers who are interested in the revival of manufacturing sectors in the developing world.'

‘The normal enterprise, contrary to widespread prejudice, can do well out of intense knowledge, without bothering with snobbish high-tech delusions. In this respect, the present book deals with all the questions you might have been afraid to ask. It offers explanation, policy and practical conclusions in an international perspective. It is a compelling read!’
