[This book] should be essential reading for all those seeking to understand the practical complexity and research richness of this emerging field. – Alex Nicholls, University of Oxford

In their new book, Jill Kickul, Clinical Professor in the Business & Society Program Area and Director of Stern’s Program in Social Entrepreneurship, and Sophie Bacq of Northeastern University outline the complexities in the field of social entrepreneurship, examining issues at the individual, organizational and institutional levels. They address the role of personal values and leadership in the conduct of social entrepreneurial initiatives while stressing the importance of stakeholders in relation to human resource management, innovation or opportunity discovery. Finally, they analyze the role of institutions in legitimating social entrepreneurs' actions. The editors posit that social entrepreneurship, as a multi-disciplinary field, presents a unique opportunity and environment for researchers to contribute to knowledge on both theoretical frameworks and practical skills.
