Editorial Reviews


The SAGE Handbook of Family Business is must-reading for anyone interested in the field of family business - scholars, consultants, and practitioners alike.  The volume represents the best in theoretical grounding, critical research findings, and managerial information required to better understand, study and operate family firms.  It also outlines promising paths for future research.  Bravo to the authors and editors. (Danny Miller 2013-06-17)

In this work some of the foremost research leaders in the field of Family Business have attracted and compiled manuscripts from a very strong set of contributing researchers. It provides a comprehensive, insightful and current overview of the field from theoretical, methodological and empirical vantage points as well as discussions of critical issues and ways forward. (Per Davidsson 2013-06-24)

"The academic field of family business has been growing dramatically in recent years and the research in this field has enjoyed major advances in both quantity and quality.  As such, there is need for a compendium of research on family business. This volume satisfies this need providing a thorough examination of the theory, content and design of family business research. The authors read like a “who’s who in family business scholarship”. It is a critical resource for all researchers and students interested in family business. This volume is a must read for all family business scholars."

(Michael A. Hitt 2013-07-29)
