'This is a major contribution to our understanding of entrepreneurship. It demolished once and for all that entrepreneurs are stand-alone characters that do it all by themselves. It demonstrates how business start-up and growth are driven by a range of other dimensions such as geographical clusters as well as inter-personal and institutional networks. This book takes us beyond the path-breaking ideas of the classical writers and re-defines them for the conditions of the 21st century global economy.' Richard Scase, Emeritus Professor of Organizational Change, Department of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, University of Kent, UK 'The two dimensional model of innovation and business clustering created in the text would be particularly useful to anybody involved in business support programmes that require regional impact as part of their outcomes. I particularly appreciate how the author combines theories related to economic growth, innovation and business clusters.' International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior & Research, vol. 21, no. 1
