- Case studies inspire a variety of activities for both theoretical discussion and practical applications and can easily be enriched and updated.
International Entrepreneurship is a much-needed text for all IE courses, as well as an ideal supplementary text for postgraduate students studying entrepreneurship, international business, management, and marketing.
'Zucchella, Hagen and Serapio's new book packs a mighty punch. Extensively researched and current, it authoritatively illuminates extant perspectives on the theory and practice of International Entrepreneurship (IE), enriching the discussion with many memorable frameworks and illustrative case studies and vignettes. These attributes and its rare coverage of IE governance and implementation processes elevate this text to the upper echelon of IE books. A must-have.'

'This is the book I wish I had written ... the co-authors' complementary expertise enables them to combine theory and practice in a way that makes the book interesting and relevant to both graduate students and IE academic scholars. The book is essential for IE courses, and its focus on entrepreneurial firms engaging in international business offers a valuable reading supplement for courses in international business or entrepreneurship.'
– Patricia McDougall-Covin, Indiana University, US
'Written by three eminent international entrepreneurship scholars, this is a valuable book for researchers, which succinctly summarizes the key themes of interest in the field. But, primarily, this text is a must-teach at Masters and dedicated undergraduate student levels as it authoritatively combines state-of-the art research with real and fascinating company cases and examples.'
