About this title:

Synopsis: 'Landstrom and Lohrke's edited collection is an important and timely contribution to the literature on entrepreneurship research. Prior history-orientated titles mainly provide a ''nice-to-know'' orientation into the developments and landmarks in the history of scholarly conceptualization of entrepreneurial phenomena. This volume, however, also provides very useful accounts of relatively more recent disciplinary and contextual origins and developments of some of the core theoretical and methodological tools that empirical entrepreneurship researchers use today. The book is essential reading for research students and other new entrants to the world of entrepreneurship research.'
- Per Davidsson, Queensland University of Technology, Australia

'A major contribution to historical research in entrepreneurship. History is a vital link to our understanding of this critical activity, a link that is no longer missing. It is arguable that history provides us the richest body of information that will enable us to understand what entrepreneurs can contribute to social welfare and what is lost from misdirection of their efforts. This book provides an abundance of such important insights.'
- William J. Baumol, New York University and Princeton University, US

'I am delighted to see what a fine job Hans Landstrom and Franz Lohrke have done in giving us an historical perspective on the development of empirical research into entrepreneurship. They have recruited a stellar cast of authors and organized their contributions such that it is easy to grasp the intellectual roots of our profession. I believe that graduate students, junior scholars, and even seasoned veterans will benefit from understanding where our ''big ideas'' come from, so that they may set their own work in historical context. I highly recommend this volume.'
- Howard Aldrich, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, US

This book historicizes entrepreneurship research, its primary thesis being 'history matters'. Expert contributors discuss the field's long history and explore whether it has developed a mature and comprehensive knowledge base. The intellectual roots of several important theories are then examined in depth because, as entrepreneurship research has become more theory driven, and scholars have borrowed theories from many different fields, it becomes increasingly important to understand their origin. Finally, the book demonstrates how economic history research (for example, the historical and institutional context of entrepreneurial behavior) can contribute to our understanding of entrepreneurship.

Providing a broad overview of myriad theories and both their development and utilization in extant entrepreneurship research, this book will prove a fascinating and illuminating read for students, researchers and academics in the field of entrepreneurship.
