About this book

Departing from the traditional approach of surveying current and future trends and developments, this unique Handbook brings phenomena, theories, and concepts from multiple disciplines together to advance entrepreneurship. With original contributions from authors who are experts in their fields, the collection offers state-of-the-art insights into generating new areas for research, new theories and concepts, and new questions for policy debates – all aimed at advancing entrepreneurship. Divided into four sections and covering perspectives such as neuroscience, theology, organisational behavior and education, The Palgrave Handbook of Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Entrepreneurship is a rich source of information for researchers, educators, entrepreneurs, leaders and managers.

Reviews

“This Handbook is an excellent addition to literature. With a diverse range of authors and research perspectives, the Handbook captures the rich variety of debate and thought within the field. Together, the different contributions highlight the maturity of this field and the research therein, as well as its global nature. It is a joy to read, and it really makes you think.” (Shaker A. Zahra, Robert E. Buuck Chair of Entrepreneurship, University of Minnesota, USA)

“Entrepreneurship is a complex and dynamic phenomenon. This new edited collection from Turcan and Fraser includes wide-ranging contributions each considering entrepreneurship from a different perspective. This collection illustrates the breadth of interest in entrepreneurship, as well as the richness and diversity of the entrepreneurship research agenda.” (Sara Carter, Professor and OBE, University of Strathclyde, UK)

“This project gets to the core of the current conversation in entrepreneurship around the need to utilize an ‘umbrella’  to capture the multidisciplinary contributions of the entrepreneurship literature, and also to address the distinctions of micro, meso, macro, and meta research. The authors cover a true breadth of topical discussions in entrepreneurship, from linguistics to social perspectives to business models.” (Siri Terjesen, Professor, American University & Norwegian School of Economics)
