The chapter begins by discussing the developments in entrepreneurship as an academic subject from the economist perspective to the organizational theorist one. It then meanders along many strands within the entrepreneurship literature including women entrepreneurs in transition and emerging economies, thoughts on small business entrepreneurship, and social enterprises and links all the thoughts back to the context of entrepreneurship within transition economies. So this chapter does not limit itself to entrepreneurship within transition economies, but places it within the wider global context with numerous examples and references to the extant literature.
