In this volume for academics and students in cultural theory, sociology, entrepreneurship, development studies, and liberal arts, Ziegler (Social Entrepreneurship Research Group GETIDOS, U. of Greifswald and the Institut fur okologische Wirtschaftsforschung, Berlin, Germany) assembles 11 chapters in which social entrepreneurs and academics mostly from Europe consider aspects of the field. They discuss their work, the field, and its relationship to the state, including how they work to reduce the rate of racially and religiously motivated youth crime; create integrated, decentralized, and ecologically sound water management; and implement education, and employment networks for the self-employed. In subsequent sections, they examine Joseph Schumpeter's model; the culture of management and the corporation; the roots, features, and study of social entrepreneurship; sustainable development; the rhetoric and practice of social entrepreneurship in the UK; and art as a means for public entrepreneurship. Some chapters are based on papers given at a conference on the topic.
