By combining high-quality and in-depth research in the field, this book provides a state-of-the-art analysis of the current topical issues in European entrepreneurship and small business research.

With contributions from international experts, the book provides a particular focus on the behaviour between individuals and groups within different contexts; the personal and structural factors that shape entrepreneurial and small business activity; and a focus on gender in entrepreneurship within different contexts.

Students and academics interested in gender and entrepreneurship will benefit from this far-reaching book. The contextual and practical approach will also be of use to national and regional policy makers.
Critical Acclaim
‘This volume demonstrates the dynamism and diversity of entrepreneurship as it is practised by men and women across a variety of contexts, and also the vibrancy and relevance of the entrepreneurship research field as it attempts to understand and communicate this widespread social and economic phenomenon.’
– Sara Carter, Strathclyde Business School, UK

‘This book showcases thought-provoking studies that reflect what European entrepreneurship scholarship has successfully pioneered: penetrating analyses of often taken-for-granted assumptions about the nature of entrepreneurship. These chapters direct readers to where entrepreneurship scholarship will likely go in the future, particularly in using “gendered” perspectives to realize the heterogeneity of entrepreneurial activity in various contexts.’
– William B. Gartner, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark and California Lutheran University, US
