"This book is an example of excellent empirical research, deep scholarship, tested and testable hypotheses, all conducted with a substantial cross-disciplinary flavor. Its deep engagement with the subject has provided evidence to support some of my theories, challenged others, and directed me to new grounds for speculation. I think it will do this for anyone prepared to read it closely."from the foreward by John Seely Brown "This is an impressive and useful collection of essays, and certainly one of the best academic treatments of the evolution of Silicon Valley."Enterprise & SocietyKenney, Martin is the author of 'Understanding Silicon Valley The Anatomy of an Entrepreneurial Region', published 2000 under ISBN 9780804737340 and ISBN 0804737347.
