Dear Colleagues,

I’m writing to draw to your attention a new book that is part of the JIBS Special Collections series.  It is titled International Entrepreneurship: The Pursuit of Opportunities Across National Borders (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018), and contains an editorial describing international entrepreneurship research that has been published in JIBS, and eight previously published JIBS papers.  The selected papers have challenged conventional wisdom in international entrepreneurship scholarship and represent diverse topics and empirical methods.  I hope you find the time to (re-)read them!  The Table of Contents is listed below.
