It is widely accepted that entrepreneurship contributes to development, imparting a positive effect on society; creating employment, economic expansion, a larger tax base, and more consumer well-being. This is increasingly supported by research, and acknowledged by governments across Asia and around the world. Bringing together some of the most significant research to come out of the field in the past few decades, this major work presents a nuanced reading of key concepts of Asian entrepreneurship, in depth, and with emphasis on comprehensive, scholarly discussion.
Entrepreneurship differs greatly across Asia: cultural values, government policy and a variety of other factors, including a nation's colonial experience, all affect the way entrepreneurship is understood and studied. This collection is designed to clarify and enable clearer understanding of the various cultural and historical factors which have shaped the field of entrepreneurship in Asia.

A great collection of articles on entrepreneurship on Asia that provides readers with one of the single best resources on key drivers on Asian economic growth. From analyzing the impact of middle class female entrepreneurs in Japan, to the role of family-owned businesses in China, to technological change in Taiwan and Singapore, this is a great series on the critical role entrepreneurship plays in the health of economies.-- Shaun Rein
This remarkable Sage collection provides a well-planned synergy worth much more than the sum of its parts.-- Professor Ilan Alon
Entrepreneurship is getting more important in Asia as the conventional 9 to 5 jobs have declined in proportion. For instance, in Singapore, the number of self-employed has increased from 227,000 in 1996 to over 312,000 in 2012. Equally important is the fact that most governments in the world,including those in Asia, face persistent budget deficits. Hence, governments in general have less resources to invest to generate jobs. We therefore need more entrepreneurs and especially creative ones to spear the economic growth. We need to know the determinants of entrepreneurship. Professor Leo Dana has selected 95 excellent articles on Asian entrepreneurship for reprint in a 5 volume collector set. I am confident that policy-makers, researchers and the varsity students will find that these five volumes will present to them very useful perspectives in understanding entrepreneurship and in promoting jobs via constructive entrepreneurship.-- Professor Chew Soon Beng
Dr. Leo-Paul Dana is the best and most active professor I have ever known in the field of Asian Entrepreneurship. I must say no Asian native researcher can excel him. He has extensively travelled and lived in this region, and his knowledge about Asia, ranging from culture to academics, has been highly regarded. This book is surely a must for scholars and students in this field.-- Professor Dr. Teruo Shinato
This book just makes it a simple task not only to obtain an introduction to what is going on in Asia but also to get an almost complete picture of what is happening on the entrepreneurial scene. There is thus no doubt in the reviewer's mind that Asian Entrepreneurship should be bought by all university libraries.-- Jan Vang * European Planning Studies *
