Summary This edited book describes the growth of entrepreneurship in a country that has recently become an economic powerhouse but is still often ignored by scholars and popular press - South Korea. In this collection of essays, scholars describe entrepreneurship in South Korea, highlighting the favorable political and cultural values conducive to its development. Several authors examine individual and group enterprises from President Chung Hee Park's era (1961-1979) to today's savvy information science technocrats. Other authors investigate the characteristics of entrepreneurial family firms across three East Asian countries, i.e., Korea, China and Japan. Chapters exploring the impact of the new media and globalization on Korean entrepreneurs conclude the book
