about this book

This volume is an excellent addition to Routledge’s Studies in Small Business series. In this extended and novel entrepreneurial analysis of small firm inception and growth, a leading authority in the field develops a new kind of 'micro-micro’ analysis, applying rigorous methods from economics, accounting and finance to gain a deeper understanding of micro-firms. Reid examines performance, hierarchy, capital structure, monitoring and control, flexibility, innovation and information systems. Using statistical, econometric and qualitative methods of empirical research, Foundations of Small Business Enterprise tracks and analyses the evolution of 150 small firms from their early years through to maturity. This title will appeal to a wide range of students, specialists and practitioners in economics, accounting and finance.

Using a number of econometric techniques, such as regression analysis, logit modelling and cluster analysis, the data analysis is totally empirically founded and strongly based on a variety of rigorous theories in economic and firm theory… The book is mainly aimed at academics, to demonstrate rigour in the testing of theories and there are many. However the non-academic and non-economist can benefit from the very interesting conclusions in this book… Overall, this book achieved its major objective, which was to consolidate all the results of Professor Reid's research in one place and link the different strands of the studies with a strong theoretical underpinning drawn from a number of different disciplines – economics, entrepreneurship and IS. It is well written." -- Rana Tassabehji, University of Bradford School of Management
