Critical Acclaim
‘Zahra’s introduction is invaluable. . . Professor Zahra has done a great job in outlining and illustrating the state-of-the-art in corporate entrepreneurship research. The book is particularly useful for academics and doctoral students who are trying to research corporate entrepreneurship at the frontiers of knowledge. There is no other book that provides such a detailed and informative overview of corporate entrepreneurship, and having so many landmark publications brought together in one volume is very convenient. It is also desirable reading for teachers of corporate entrepreneurship who wish to access and incorporate material that goes beyond the basics.’
– Peter Rosa, International Small Business Journal
