Combining scientific rigour with an applied focus, this book describes small enterprise activity in Lithuanian in the pre-Accession period. It successfully combines quantitative analysis with qualitative insights to paint a picture of the nature of entrepreneurship and small business activity in rapidly changing transition conditions. The book also draws attention to the importance of institutional deficiencies and barriers to entrepreneurship development, a recurrent theme in a transition context.
"Dr Aidis is to be congratulated in producing a volume that makes a significant contribution to the evidence base on entrepreneurship in transition conditions, with some important implications for policy development." Professor David Smallbone (Kingston University).
