Chapter 11: Historical methods for contextualizing entrepreneurship research
This chapter describes the use of historical methods in entrepreneurship research, including issues related to (a) data and sources, (b) interpretation and analysis, and (c) the form in which findings are presented. It places these methodological issues in the context of the opportunities and challenges that historical perspective offers in entrepreneurship research. The chapter argues that an understanding of historical methods, and particularly how these methods vary depending on the nature of the research questions and goals, is crucial for the development of historically contextualized research on entrepreneurship.
