'Research on the economics of innovation has enjoyed a remarkable resurgence in recent years. In this volume, leading scholars in the field focus on gaps in our understanding of innovation, rather than summarizing what is known. Its emphasis on gaps in knowledge, combined with the broad perspectives that deal with industrial dynamics, technology policy, firm strategy, and institutional issues, make this volume indispensable to scholars and students alike.' David Mowery, William A. and Betty H. Hasler Professor of New Enterprise Development, University of California at Berkeley 'Malerba and Brusoni have done a wonderful job bringing together a super-star cast of leading scholars of innovation from a variety of disciplines. The contributions offer fresh perspectives on the seminal problems of the innovation field as well as thought-provoking analysis of completely new questions. This wonderful collection of essays defines the state-of-the-art in the field of innovation. It tells us where we have been, and more importantly, where we should be going. It is a 'must-read' for any scholar doing research or teaching in the field of innovation, and will become a standard reference for years to come.' Gary Pisano, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School 'This is an excellent volume with contributions from many of the world's top scholars on technological innovation. It combines national and enterprise level perspectives and will be a compelling read for those deeply interested in the innovation process, whether academics, policy makers, or executives.' David J. Teece, Mitsubishi Bank Professor of International Business and Finance and Director of the Institute of Management, Innovation and Organization, Haas School of Business, University of California at Berkeley
