Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By studying relevant textual debates in three countries, the United States, the United Kingdom and Finland, this book addresses the problem of a limited understanding regarding entrepreneurial education. The research concentrates on texts that deal with entrepreneurial education in the context of primary and secondary education. In addition to an examination of this contested topic, the study also assesses the utility of social cartography as a new method to compare national educational debates. <BR>The research approach is qualitative and its overall design is comparative. Argument analysis and social cartography were employed to pattern data from the national debates. Rationales for entrepreneurial education are presented in intertextual field as maps of ideas. The author uses phenomenographic method to organize the relevant arguments in each national context. <BR>The study finds that arguments supporting or opposing entrepreneurial education are highly contextual. According to the literature studied, entrepreneurship education is more directly focused upon small business and entrepreneurship, whereas enterprise education is aimed at the development of enterprising behavior, skills and attributes, not only for business use. Furthermore, debates on entrepreneurial education are more complex than shown in previous studies. The debate in the United States is more diverse and practice-driven than those are in the United Kingdom and Finland. In addition, the discourse of each country has unique categories. <BR>The book includes suggestions for future research and gives recommendations particularly for Finnish practice, which could also benefit other societies just starting their path inentrepreneurial education. The study serves as a comprehensive literature source for future interests and research.
