This set of insightful papers demonstrates the importance of historical perspectives in the study of entrepreneurship. By exploring the role of entrepreneurship in the history of global capitalism, these volumes show that historical knowledge can challenge widely accepted generalizations made about entrepreneurship. The selected articles cover the best historical research on the role of entrepreneurship in creating global capitalism; the cultural and institutional explanations for geographical and temporal variations in entrepreneurship; the deep historical origins of `born global' companies; the importance of networks and diaspora in new international market development; the key role of public policy in shaping cross-border entrepreneurial activity; and the impact of international entrepreneurship on local economies. This comprehensive collection will be of great interest to scholars of entrepreneurship, international business and business history.

`Edward Elgar's collections are an excellent way of initiating the (mature) student into a research topic. They select essential articles that are often difficulty to find and introduce them with a helpful survey providing the intellectual context. Geoffrey Jones and Daniel Wadhwani's two volumes on entrepreneurship are no exception.' -- James Foreman-Peck, International Small Business Journal
