'This book brings together a comprehensive collection of both classic and recent articles covering a broad terrain of knowledge about the scope of small business and entrepreneurship policy and adeptly lays out some of the conflicting views and evidence about the effective role and impact of public policy to promote entrepreneurship and small business. This will contribute greatly to the debate on how, under what conditions, and in which economic contexts, policy measures of various kinds impact on the start-up and growth of new and small enterprises.' -- Lois Stevenson, International Development Research Centre, Egypt
Edited by the late David Smallbone, formerly Professor of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Small Business Research Centre, Kingston University, UK
