Review:

'A one-stop shop for academic thinking on how small business and firm creation influence regional economic development, and vice versa.'

Michael W-P Fortunato, Community Development

'Jay Mitra’s book provides a rich, comprehensive, and well-informed review of the role of new business formation and small firms for growth. It offers an abundant combination of theory, results of empirical research, and practical policy conclusions...The book is very suitable as a basic introductory text for university education but may also be rather valuable for all kinds of readers who want to know more about the manifold aspects of entrepreneurship for innovation and regional development.'

Michael Fritsch, Papers on Regional Science

 'Jay Mitra presents an excellent and extremely accurate book that offers a fantastic synthesis of theory and evidence, enriched with diverse, insightful case studies. I will use it intensely to embed my research into a global context and will introduce it into my masters programme classes. I learnt a lot from this outstanding book and highly recommend it as a major reference. Jay Mitra does a masterful job in presenting a global and comprehensive view on one of the most important regional phenomena in our world: entrepreneurship!'

Silke Tegtmeier, Leuphana University of Lüneburg, Germany

'The book captures state-of-the-art knowledge of the relations between entrepreneurship, innovation and regional development that are rooted in a deep understanding of economics. Jay Mitra delights the reader with precise formulations of complex relationships and endorses the international orientation that the book promises. I can definitely recommend this book to the interested reader.'

Rainer Harms, University of Twente, the Netherlands

'Jay Mitra’s Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Regional Development takes an important step in this direction by moving us along the path of marrying liberal democracy and the entrepreneurial society. It does so by focusing on regional development and global change. For if the triumph of liberal democracy is universal then the future of entrepreneurship is surely a regional phenomenon.'

Zoltan J. Acs, George Mason University, USA

'This book is a must-read for anyone who first approaches the ‘mystery’ of entrepreneurship and innovation and how they impact on our economic and social welfare. The great contribution of Professor Mitra’s approach to the study of entrepreneurship lies in its convinced multidisciplinarity and in its vision of the entrepreneurial process as one of both economic and social value creation.'

Sergio Arzeni, Director, OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Local Development, France
