About this book


Interest in the study of family business has increased significantly over the last decade. The research on this subject - and the related subject of entrepreneurship - has developed in parallel within a number of different disciplines, making it the perfect candidate for an annotated bibliography.
This book aims to catalog the major empirical, theoretical, and practical articles on family business. Included for each article listed are a summary of key findings, and a list of the methodologies and key conceptual models used. It also features a review of the literature, a discussion of how family businesses have been defined, and agenda for future research into both family business and entrepreneurship studies.
