Joseph Schumpeter is seen as the foremost theoretician of entrepreneurship. In addition, Schumpeter, whose "creative destruction" is as famous as Milton Friedman's "there is no free lunch," is increasingly recognized as a major economist, often given the same stature as John Maynard Keynes. Schumpeter spent the last twenty years of his life as a Professor of Economics at Harvard University. English-speaking readers may be familiar with some of his works, especially The Theory of Economic Development and the classic Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy. However, very few of Schumpeter's key texts on the entrepreneur and entrepreneurship have been available in English. This anthology contains several newly translated texts and puts together, for the very first time, all of Schumpeter's writings on the entrepreneur and entrepreneurship. English-speaking readers will now be able to access the entire palette of Schumpeter's work and to follow the evolution of his ideas over time. The volume begins with an introduction that points readers to the most important aspects of the works presented. The introduction also attempts to go beyond Schumpeter's ideas, drawing on his basic intuitions of entrepreneurship to share a couple of key notions: that entrepreneurship consists of a new combination of already existing elements in the economy and that the entrepreneur has to break through resistance to the new idea, in him or herself as well as in others.

Review:

"This compilation has many works translated into English for the first time, granting a more complete understanding of [Schumpeter's] theories of economics. The editors add their own notes on the work, granting a comprehensive analysis to tie the work together as a whole. The Entrepreneur is a must for any student of economics, be they scholarly or non-specialist general reader, and is a core addition to community and college business library collections." (Midwest Book Review)

"I am delighted to see, at long last, these original essays by Schumpeter available in English. Although these won't definitively settle the question of 'what Schumpeter really meant,' they do show the subtlety of his thinking with regard to the role of entrepreneurs in capitalist society. Many scholars will be surprised!" (Howard Aldrich, Kenan Professor of Sociology, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill)

"Schumpeter's view of what modern capitalism is all about and how it works is compelling. Long ignored by much of the economics profession it now is beginning to get the attention it deserves. This book will help further this much needed development." (Richard R. Nelson Columbia University)

"Knudsen, Becker, and Swedberg have done a magnificent job of translation and interpretation." (Richard N. Langlois)

"Anyone who wishes to know what Schumpeter, that undisputed father of extensive entrepreneurship theory, really thought and really understood must turn to this illuminating volume." (William J. Baumol)
