The only book to focus on British entrepreneurship and small businesses under Labour from an academically rigorous and analytical perspective, this book covers: * the nature of the Labour Government's policies for small firms: how far has Labour maintained the Conservative emphasis and how far has it provided a distinctive interpretation of its own? In what way does Labour's approach connect to its general economic and industrial policy? * the way in which Labour has formed and implemented its small firms policy: to what extent has Labour maintained previous practices and what changes have been introduced into policy-making, stressing alternative themes? * the impact on the small business constituency of Labour policy and practice since 1997: how distinctive does Labour's strategy and procedure appear to small business? This book is a must read for all economics, and business and management students interested in, or studying entrepreneurship.
