"This book focuses on the politics and aesthetics of entrepreneurial processes in order to shed light on entrepreneurial creation itself." "Presenting original empirical material, the contributors examine control and entrepreneurship in various organizational contexts." "The book provides entrepreneurship studies with a new language, which in itself is an aesthetic instrument with political implications, resulting in new theoretical, empirical and practical possibilities. It will prove a fascinating read for students, academics and researchers with an interest in entrepreneurship and management and creativity and aesthetics."--Jacket
