It is over twenty years since the first research article on social entrepreneurship was published. The literature has reached the critical mass necessary for reflection and singling out of exemplar pieces, and the exponential growth in research interest in the field now merits identification of foundational and model papers to aid and guide future advancements. In creating this two-volume collection, the editors have successfully brought together the most important and influential social entrepreneurship articles to date. Topics covered include social entrepreneurship opportunities and creation, developing business models and organizational forms, social impact and contextual influences on social entrepreneurship. The collection, with an original introduction by the editors, will be of immense value to students, researchers and scholars interested in the field of social entrepreneurship.

‘This book is a valuable tool for students and those working to develop social entrepreneurship curricula. It is helpful for instilling in its readers the message that words such as ‘social entrepreneurship’, ‘sustainability’ and ‘social responsibility’ are not to be taken lightly. For the new generation of university students, heavily embedded in a policy impetus toward social entrepreneurship, this message is both timely and necessary.’
– Maria-Carmen Pantea, International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal
