At last, a book that focuses on trendsetting thinking and research in the field of entrepreneurship and sets an agenda for current and future movements in the field.

The aim of the book is to advance entrepreneurship research, focussing on the following four key movements:

• broad movements within the academic field of entrepreneurship and how to move it further in terms of new frameworks, theories and methodologies
• movements in the concept of entrepreneurship through project-based, action-based, enactment based and discourse-based approaches
• knowledge-based entrepreneurship and the processes in which the role of universities, new organisations, regions and cities are connected and exemplified
• global, ethnic, transformed and new economies and how entrepreneurship contributes to renewing economies and moving beyond just economics to view the effects of entrepreneurship on societies.

Students and scholars of entrepreneurship and business administration will find this a clear yet far-reaching account of the movement of entrepreneurship research.
‘. . . the four books comprising the series would certainly be a valuable addition to any entrepreneurship library. However, each book also stands alone as an individual purchase.’
– Lorraine Warren, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research

‘. . . the book is worthwhile reading for entrepreneurship scholars – many chapters provide intriguing reading. . . the editors have fully achieved their objective of proving that there is not only one form of entrepreneurship but many. This book clearly shows that multiplicity in entrepreneurship is not only important but should be encouraged, as it provides a fertile ground for creativity.’
– Hans Landström, International Small Business Journal

‘This book has an excellent index, extensive references, lists of figures, and tables, and endnotes are provided for each individual chapter. . . . This is an important book for all academic library business collections, especially because of its global scope.’
– Karl G. Siewert, Business Information Alert

‘Drawing from contributions by scholars of entrepreneurship from North America, Western Europe and Asia, this edited book celebrates the vibrancy and interdisciplinarity of entrepreneurship research. It showcases the renewed importance of entrepreneurship studies in the social sciences. New Movements in Entrepreneurship is a tour de force in entrepreneurship studies that must not be missed. It’s bold in its claims, exciting in its suggestions for new directions, and provocative in its call for a new intellectual movement – all essential ingredients of entrepreneurship itself! Practitioners, students and researchers of entrepreneurship will look back in many years’ time and thank Steyaert and Hjorth for putting up a superb collection. I strongly recommend it to any creative individuals who are interested in how the entrepreneurial world really works.’
– Henry Wai-chung Yeung, National University of Singapore

‘Hjorth and Steyaert have succeeded in compiling a volume that is “mainstream” enough to appeal to entrepreneurship scholars both in North America and Europe, yet different enough to provoke and make a contribution. The authors include some of the most prominent scholars on both sides of the Atlantic, and they provide fresh views on several “hot topics” in contemporary research such as a process view on entrepreneurship research; the opportunity concept; the role of the individual; the importance of knowledge and asymmetric information, as well as ethnic and international entrepreneurship.’
– Per Davidsson, Jönköping University, Sweden
