Edited by Marcela Ramírez-Pasilla, Ethel Brundin and Magdalena Markowska

Entrepreneurship in emerging countries presents us with a unique set of working attitudes, modes of thinking, social practices and processes. This book explores these characteristics, focusing on the conceptualization of entrepreneurship ‘in-between’. It highlights top-down and bottom-up initiatives as well as driving forces for entrepreneurial activities in emerging economies and developing countries, presenting the diversity, nuances and multiplicity of facets of relevant but unexplored contexts that we need in order to expand our dominant and traditional understandings of entrepreneurship

This research review offers an examination and discussion of the seminal contributions by many prominent scholars in the heterodox tradition of post-Keynesian economic thought. The authors explore methodological issues – showing the contrast with orthodox thinking on fundamental grounds, concepts such as credit, money and production – which are crucial to understanding the working of our economic systems, as well as several interrelated macroeconomic issues including employment, distribution, growth, development, asset bubbles, and financial crises. The review provides a unique opportunity to appraise and appreciate the depth and variety of post-Keynesian economics at both theoretical and policy-oriented level.

This important research review brings together seminal works investigating the framework upon which the economic analysis of land markets is based, stretching from the earliest insights of the founding fathers to current debates and research. Recent work on the process and implications of 'land value capitalisation' and land use regulation is well represented, for due to capitalisation, land is responsible for far more of the distribution of real incomes than is widely recognised. This research review settles this, restoring the study of land markets to its rightful place – central to economic understanding.

What is the relationship between politics and international law? Inspired by comparative politics and socio-legal studies, this Research Handbook develops a novel framework for comparative analysis of politics and international law at different stages of governance and in different governance systems. It applies the framework in a wide range of fields—from human rights and environmental standards, to cyber conflict and intellectual property—to show how the relationship between politics and international law varies depending on the sites where it unfolds.
