  • George Brenkert leads with an overview of the ethical issues in entrepreneurship. S. Venkataraman argues that one of the main business ethics frameworks, stakeholder theory, is incomplete without paying attention to the equilibrating forces of entrepreneurship. Donna Wood and Jeanne Logsdon suggest that corporate citizenship plays a key role in understanding these issues. The volume also includes papers by Saras Sarasvarthy, Daniel R. Gilbert Jr., Ramakrishna Velamuri, Jeffrey Harrison, Dean Shepherd and Moren Levesque, Steven Michael, Sandra Waddock, Ron Mitchell, Robbin Derry, Martin Calkins, Brad Brown, and Richard Nielsen.
