‘Emerging Paradigms in International Entrepreneurship consists of 15 articles organised into six broad themes of interest to scholars. . . which are likely to remain of interest for some time.’
– Ben Oviatt, Journal of International Business Studies

International entrepreneurship as a field of study is not necessarily confined to the internationalisation phenomenon, and recently advanced definitions suggest significant scope for the development and establishment of, as yet, undetermined parameters.

Emerging Paradigms in International Entrepreneurship identifies key themes that collectively demonstrate the convergence of thinking at the interface between the disciplines of international business and entrepreneurship. These are:

• development of the field and the effects of international entrepreneurship on a new economy
• conceptual and paradigmatic developments
• international entrepreneurship and the internet as a developing research agenda
• contacts links and networks as process driven internationalisation
• cross-sectoral, cross-national and cross-cultural comparisons of entrepreneurship
• the experiential emphasis in entrepreneurial internationalisation.

Explaining the complexities of enterprise in an international and sometimes global environment, this book is distinguished by the cross-disciplinary nature of its contributors and their efforts to develop new paradigmatic approaches in an area characterised by theoretical diversity and convergence.

Appealing to researchers, academics and policymakers working in international business – particularly the international growth and development of small firms – and for entrepreneurship and small firm scholars this book is a must-have. Lecturers and students on post-graduate programmes would also be interested in the book as a reader.
