More Information
This Handbook focuses on the complex relationship between entrepreneurship and conflict. Editors Wim Naudé and Bernadette Power construct a broad overview of central research themes in the field, covering states being captured by entrepreneurs, states capturing businesses, entrepreneurship in post-conflict reconstruction, and entrepreneurs in conflict against other entrepreneurs.

Contributing authors analyze pragmatic evidence and academic literature to explore entrepreneurship and conflict from industry, country, and firm level perspectives. They consider conflict in the context of family business settings, the ways in which war entrepreneurship and military strategy influence long-term societal developments, and the role of entrepreneurship in peace-building. Ultimately, the Handbook warns against the dystopia that destructive digital entrepreneurship can cause, outlining the challenges it poses and advocating for institutional responses in order to ensure its regulation.

This Handbook is a fascinating read for researchers, scholars, and graduate students specializing in conflict studies, entrepreneurship studies, business and management, and politics and economics.
Critical Acclaim
‘There are two important new trends in entrepreneurship. First, how different forms of entrepreneurship contribute to, or undermine, economic welfare and second the impact of rising conflict, globally and locally. This long overdue Handbook – edited by real experts in the field -convincingly comes to grips with both.’
– Saul Estrin, London School of Economics, UK

‘Conflicts seem to dominate these days, in many ways. This observation gives ample room to think about the role of entrepreneurship against the background of all these conflicts. This Handbook is an indispensable source for that purpose. Dr. Wim Naudé and Dr. Bernadette Power have composed a great edited book about this subject, really a must-read in the field of entrepreneurship.’
– Enno Masurel, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands

In an era rife with conflict throughout every level of society, this pathbreaking Handbook paves important new ground in analyzing how entrepreneurship can be both a positive response but also a concerning trigger for conflict. This Handbook draws on a broad-spectrum of expert authors spanning a diverse range of backgrounds and scholarly fields to shed new light on the links between entrepreneurship and conflict. This is a must read not just for entrepreneurship scholarship but for all of the social sciences and thought leaders concerned with the stability and sustainability of democratic society.’
– David B Audretsch, Indiana University, US
