Entrepreneurship is one of the fastest growing fields of tertiary study in North America and Europe.

Globally, over 460 million people currently start a new business or become owners of a new business annually.

While entrepreneurship research is in its early stages of development, the emerging framework identifies entrepreneurial people, entrepreneurial methods and social impacts of entrepreneurship at its core.

The six articles in this special issue contribute to the field through multi level theory and mixed methodology development, case studies, historical, social and gender perspectives, business failure and personality type.

This unique Australasian perspective is ideal for Entrepreneurship course materials, anthologies and tutorial exercises seeking relevant regional content which is analysed in the context of the current international literature.

This special issue is available under its ISBN 978-0-9775242-1-1 - for reserve copies in libraries or adoption as a course reader - and may be ordered directly from the publisher.
