This fourth book in the New Movements in Entrepreneurship series focuses on the politics and aesthetics of entrepreneurial processes, in order to shed light on entrepreneurial creation itself.Presenting original empirical material, the eminent contributors examine control and entrepreneurship in various organizational contexts. They go on to demonstrate how control can be exercised entrepreneurially, how art brings an entrepreneurial force into society, and how entrepreneurship operates by aesthetic moves. The need to move beyond the traditional focus on the economic and business implications of entrepreneurship is also discussed, as is the relevance of political and aesthetic theory to our understanding of entrepreneurship as a creative force.The book provides entrepreneurship studies with a new language, that in itself is an aesthetic effort with political implications, resulting in new theoretical, empirical and practical possibilities. It will prove a fascinating read for students, academics and researchers with an interest in entrepreneurship and management and creativity and aesthetics.

Review:

`Stylish, bold, fiery, and full of zest, this book could well have been called "Embodying Entrepreneurship". . . for perhaps the first time, we have a cultured, scholarly, "in-the-flesh" treatment of entrepreneurial life. Ranging from striptease to de Sade, the aboriginal to Christo, and the grotesque to the sublime, The Politics and Aesthetics of Entrepreneurship is a tantalizing and critically refreshing work throughout. This one could easily become the "bad boy book" of entrepreneurial studies, given how strongly it challenges (slaps?) existing entrepreneurship studies.' -- Daved Barry, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal `Daniel Hjorth and Chris Steyaert make a unique contribution to management education. Their ability to illustrate complex ideas through theatre and visual media is outstanding and much appreciated by a wide audience. This book is no exception. Their insights into the nature of entrepreneurship are fresh and original. Their style of presentation is both rich and rewarding. This is a book to surprise you and it will.' -- Heather Hoepfl, University of Essex, UK `. . . the four books comprising the series would certainly be a valuable addition to any entrepreneurship library. However, each book also stands alone as an individual purchase.' -- Lorraine Warren, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research
