About the Book :

This book is the result of extensive field work, research in libraries and teaching in the subject area. It covers the major sectors of self employment in this country viz : industrial entrepreneurship, non-industrial entrepreneurship and self employment in the rural sector, including agriculture. The happy research mix of material collected from printed and manuscript sources with the data from the field helps project a realistic picture of the present day state of affairs in certain select areas of Entrepreneurship and Management in India. A significant feature of the book is the attempt to analyses these problems in the context of regional and cultural specificity, also. The role of the heritage variable in economic growth has been examined and problems of organisation structure, finance, personnel, marketing, corporate issues etc., have been high lighted with reference to the concerns of entrepreneurial development. The larger social frame in which these activities are placed has never been lost sight of. This book is bound to be of interest to serious students of Management, Economic Growth and Applied History.
