About the Author:

Justin G. Longenecker established SMALL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT as a leader in the market from the first edition of the book 52 years ago. In addition to this market-leading text, he wrote a number of other business books and numerous articles in journals, such as Journal of Small Business Management, Academy of Management Review, Business Horizons, and Journal of Business Ethics. Longenecker was active in several professional organizations and served as president of the International Council for Small Business. In 2005, the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) honored him with the Max S. Wortman Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, the selection as a USASBE Justin G. Longenecker Fellow is the highest recognition that the Association gives to individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the development, furtherance and benefit of small and medium businesses. Justin Longenecker truly was a legend in his own time and continues to have profound influence through the lives of those who knew him. Longenecker grew up in a family business. After attending Central Christian College of Kansas for two years, he earned his B.A. in political science from Seattle Pacific University, his M.B.A. from Ohio State University, and his Ph.D. from the University of Washington. He taught at Baylor University, where he was Emeritus Chavanne Professor of Christian Ethics in Business until his death in 2005.

He holds a PhD and an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin and a BS from Abilene Christian University, where he is a member of the University's Board of Trustees. He has taught at Virginia Tech University and Texas Tech University, and has served as the dean of the business school at Abilene Christian University.

He has served as co-editor for the Journal of Financial Research and editor of the Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance. He has published articles in a number of finance and small business journals and is the co-author of a leading corporate finance textbook Foundations of Finance. Petty has worked as a consultant for oil and gas firms and consumer product companies. He also served as a subject matter expert on a best-practices study on shareholder value-based management, funded by the American Productivity and Quality Center, and he was part of a research team for the Australian Department of Industry to study the feasibility of establishing a public equity market for small- and medium-sized enterprises in Australia.

Palich has taught entrepreneurship and strategic management in a number of countries in Europe and Latin America. His interest in entrepreneurial opportunity and small business management dates back to his grade-school years, when he set up a produce sale venture to experiment with small business ownership. That early experience became a springboard for a number of other enterprises. Since that time, he has owned and operated domestic ventures in agribusiness, automobile sales, real estate development, and educational services, as well as an international import business. Dr. Palich currently owns and operates Lead Generation X, an Internet marketing firm that employs cutting-edge promotional methods to serve its clients and their customers.
