Format: Paperback
Aldrich's review gives a good summary, but doesn't, to my mind, emphasize the unique contribution of this book which is looking at societal influences on immigrant entrepreneurship. There are oodles of studies of ethnic markets/ enclaves within societies, but this is one of the few that looks across societies. In particular, their result on the importance of red tape as a deterrent to ethnic entrepreneurship is striking and unique in the literature.
