New History on the Invention of Entrepreneurship 13/01/2010

Posted by Aykut ARIKAN in Uncategorized.

From Campus Entrepreneurship:

Great new book (h/t Schumpeter’s Century) coming out this week on the ‘history of enterprise’. The title, The Invention of Enterprise: Entrepreneurship from Ancient Mesopotamia to Modern Times, is really intriguing and I look forward to reading it. It is an edited volume and is supported by Kauffman and its series on innovation and entrepreneurship.

According to Brian of Schumpeter’s Century, you can download a sample chapter at the book’s official website. You can also pre-order from Amazon. This appears to be a work of economic history and I look forward to experiencing their approach to entrepreneurship. Here is a short snippet from the book description:

Whether hailed as heroes or cast as threats to social order, entrepreneurs–and their innovations–have had an enormous influence on the growth and prosperity of nations. The Invention of Enterprise gathers together, for the first time, leading economic historians to explore the entrepreneur’s role in society from antiquity to the present. Addressing social and institutional influences from a historical context, each chapter examines entrepreneurship during a particular period and in an important geographic location.

I’ll let you know when I read this one. Looks to be worth reviewing.
