Reviews

“A fascinating tour through the landscape of entrepreneurship scholarship and a meditation on the scientific status of the field.” (Peter G. Klein, W. W. Caruth Chair and Professor of Entrepreneurship, Baylor University, USA)

“This new text, ‘Great Minds in Entrepreneurship Research’, is to be warmly welcomed. To revisit the seminal work of leading scholars who have contributed to establishing Entrepreneurship as a mature, complex and critical body of academic analysis offers intriguing and valuable insights into how our discipline has developed over the years. Drawing upon the work of those recognised for their contribution by the Global Award for Entrepreneurship Research, Vishal Gupta presents us with a timely evaluation of the development of critical ideas, theoretical advances and also, the contribution of entrepreneurship research to global development.  I am delighted to endorse this volume and congratulate the author on his achievement.” (Susan Marlow, Professor of Entrepreneurship, Queen’s Award for Enterprise, University of Birmingham, UK)

“Great minds in entrepreneurship, indeed!  By highlighting the most significant achievements of each GAER award winner, Gupta gives us a window into the evolution of entrepreneurship research. Perhaps most importantly for today’s entrepreneurship scholars, it roots out the gaps still present and provides us with the questions the rest of us still need to address.” (Andrew C. Corbett, The Paul T. Babson Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies, Babson College, USA)
