Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary. There is growing recognition that entrepreneurship can be better understood within its context(s). This carefully designed book invites readers to take a journey: from reflecting critically on where the discussion on context and entrepreneurship stands today towards identifying future research questions and themes that deserve the attention of entrepreneurship scholars. This collection draws attention to the research challenges the entrepreneurship field faces by reviewing the many facets of contexts and by reflecting on methods and theoretical approaches that are required in order to contextualize entrepreneurship research. Written by renowned international scholars, the book's leading-edge contributions provide a thorough exploration of how to contextualize entrepreneurship research. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, comprehensive coverage of the entrepreneurship/contexts debate is included, in addition to reading lists and a chapter dedicated to advancing future research avenues. Students and academics interested in context and entrepreneurship will benefit from this far-reaching and forward-thinking book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Entrepreneurship is a context-based phenomenon and this certainly adds to the complexity of the field. Entrepreneurial action is the outcome of many contextual influences and entrepreneurs are influencing their environments. The relationship between entrepreneurship and context can be seen and studied in different ways and dimensions: spatial, industry, market, temporal, social and institutional. Obviously, there are big issues and challenges for entrepreneurship scholars in designing and doing relevant and interesting research aiming at a better understanding of the importance and the role of context in its different dimensions. In this new book, A Research Agenda for Entrepreneurship and Context, Friederike Welter and Bill Gartner have gathered an impressive list of influential scholars examining entrepreneurship as a contextual event in, among others, its historical, temporal and geographical dimensions. This masterpiece is a key milestone in this stream of research.' -- Alain Fayolle, Academy of Management Entrepreneurship Division and EMLYON Business School, France
`In most of our entrepreneurial research, context is in the background of our stories, experiments and studies. An important aspect of understanding, but seldom our focus. Welter and Gartner move context into the spotlight, a variety of authors alternately engaging, challenging, reassuring and provoking with a multiplicity of perspectives on the topic. This important book motivates us to step outside our assumptions about context, re-think our methods, and learn to apply contexts and contextualization in our studies of entrepreneurship.' -- Candida Brush, Babson College, US
`This book makes an original and welcome contribution to contemporary understanding of context and entrepreneurial behaviour. The editors and distinguished authors critically analyse a diverse range of contextual aspects which illustrate the complex and nuanced influence of this construct upon entrepreneurship. The chapters offer excellent overviews of key issues which advance thinking but also suggest future pathways for research. This text will make a welcome addition for those teaching in entrepreneurship whilst also offering thought-provoking well-informed debate for researchers and students.' -- Susan Marlow, University of Nottingham, UK
