In Entrepreneurs and Capitalism since Luther: Rediscovering the Moral Economy, Ivan Light and Léo-Paul Dana study the history of business, capitalism, and entrepreneurship to examine the values of social and cultural capital. Six chapters evaluate case studies that illustrate contrasting relationships between social networks, vocational culture, and entrepreneurship. Light and Dana argue that, in capitalism’s early stages, cultural capital is scarcer than social capital and therefore more crucial for business owners. Conversely, when capitalism is well established, social capital is scarcer than cultural capital and becomes more crucial. Light and Dana then trace moral legitimations of capitalism from the Reformation to the Enlightenment, the Gilded Age, and finally to Joseph Schumpeter whose concept of “creative destruction” freed elite entrepreneurs from moral restraints that encumber small business owners. After examining the availability of social and cultural capital in the contemporary United States, Light and Dana show that business owners’ social capital enforces conventional morality in markets, facilitating commerce and legitimating small businesses the old-fashioned way. As their networks become more isolated, elite entrepreneurs must claim and ultimately deliver successful results to earn public toleration of immoral or predatory conduct.

Although there have been previous books on ethnic entrepreneurship with limited concentration on the participation of women in their family businesses, only few business scholars consider women as key business players. This book is unique as it explores the emerging profile of Asian women entrepreneurs in a western context through analysis of interviews with 16 Asian women in Australia. Asian women entrepreneurs bring together ethnic opportunities and personal characteristics to enhance their business performance. They balance western and Asian business and personal values. The findings in this book are significant both in terms of theoretical and practical standpoints as they contribute to the existing knowledge of ethnic entrepreneurship and female entrepreneurship. Also, this book provides useful information and suggestion for the new immigrants to the west as well as the new business owners. It also portrays success stories shared by 16 experienced and successful female business owners who are role models for the next generation of women entrepreneurs, especially those with Asian ethnic background.

One of the strengths of this book lies in the admirable literature reviews throughout the volume. The authors reviews vast amounts of literature on women entrepreneurs, and more specifically, studies involving women minority entrepreneurs. The nature of this task should not be underestimated, given the ever-expanding academic field of entrepreneurship and women s entrepreneurship in particular. I read this book as an academic, and would argue that it is of most use for academics (students and professors), and provides an up-to-date and well-researched portrait of women entrepreneurs in the USA and beyond. . . this book fills an important gap in the literature, not only because there is a growing population of women entrepreneurs, but also because of the growing number of minority women entering entrepreneurship. Jodyanne Kirkwood, Women in Management Review This book serves an important purpose. It draws attention to the need for further research on ethnic minority women entrepreneurs. Anne de Bruin, International Small Business Journal This monograph provides a very comprehensive study of women entrepreneurs in the US and in many industrialized and developing countries. . . Recommended. General readers; all levels of students; faculty and professionals. E.P. Hoffman, Choice In this book Andrea E. Smith-Hunter interweaves quantitative findings with qualitative depth, resulting in an informative and objective report of explanatory variables, differences and similarities among women entrepreneurs from unlike racial backgrounds. Among others, she develops models of human capital dimensions, network structures, and entrepreneurial success. Léo-Paul Dana, Journal of International Entrepreneurship Women entrepreneurs command an increasingly large presence at the international and national levels. A significant part of this impact is due to growing numbers of minority women becoming entrepreneurs. This volume provides some of the most comprehensive data to date on the topic of women entrepreneurs across racial lines. It offers a systematic and conceptual framework for understanding issues of network structures and human and financial capital, analyzed through a comparative analysis of minority and white women entrepreneurs. The book begins by looking at the historical and current contributions of women in the labor market, as well as literature related to women entrepreneurs. Subsequent chapters take a critical and in-depth look at white and minority entrepreneurs. Later chapters examine the status of women entrepreneurs in the US, followed by various analyses of their position in the global marketplace. The book concludes with a set of action tools to aid women entrepreneurs as they navigate the road to economic success. Through a well-chosen sample, rich analysis and insightful accounts, Andrea E. Smith-Hunter compellingly details the challenges and opportunities faced by women entrepreneurs in today s marketplace. Government agencies, researchers, entrepreneurs and those involved with the financial aspects of entrepreneurial ventures will find this volume of great interest.
