Sobre o livro
Entrepreneurship in Western Europe: A Contextual Perspective looks to explain how different local cultural and historical contexts can yield radically different entrepreneurial scenarios in a heterogenous Europe. Over 20 countries are examined providing a comprehensive history of the evolution of entrepreneurship across western Europe. The book concludes with a look at the future implications of current policies on entrepreneurship and of symbiosis in western Europe. Richly illustrated, this book is perfect for undergraduate students or anyone with an interest in the business practices, economics or public policy of Europe.Contents:

"Leo Paul Dana has produced a concise and introductory collection of facts from 21 economies. The book allows the reader to decide the level of interests for details, it offers many details as well as the sources for independent research and deepening of the concepts. I strongly recommend this book as useful research and teaching tool, not only in entrepreneurship, but for business and management studies at large."

"The book represents a state-of-the-art portrait of entrepreneurship and small business issues and beside theoretical background, is richly illustrated that is very likely to offer a brighter view of these fields from the perspective of European countries."

"The bottom-up methodological approach is the most fascinating aspect of the book and it makes the reading really pleasant, also for the ones who do not have an economic and managerial background. This book will surely offer an excellent foundation for all those who are interested in an in-depth study of the topic of entrepreneurship in western Europe (researchers, businessmen, managers and politicians) and also to analyse the peculiarities of the business models of the single nations, but also of the specific territorial areas. The writing style, poetical and engaging, will add to the pleasure of reading about themes that are generally presented inadequately to readers coming from different backgrounds."
