Entrepreneurship in Nigeria: History, Principles and Practice is a stimulating collection of well-crafted essays written by eleven scholars from a rich variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is the first book in its category that confronts, reflects and analyses the principles, practice, prospects and history of entrepreneurship in Nigeria in one single volume.
The book is also an answer to the directives of the National Universities Commission and the Ondo State Government to introduce a compulsory entrepreneurship course in Nigerian universities. Like most edited works whose contributors are drawn from diverse backgrounds, an easily discernible feature of this present study is its variety of styles. This has further enriched the collection and has broadened the interdisciplinary horizons of the work. As a course material, the book transcends the immediate needs of university students. It is a valuable, lucid and informative entrepreneurial compendium for all business people, potential entrepreneurs as well as the general public.
