Enterprise and Society, 2021/22, Semester 2
Diane Holt
Tutor information is taken from the Module Catalogue

There is no need to purchase the 'main text' as this is available online. There will also be a series of readings suggested from this list across this module as well as others I will mention in class - information on these will be provided during the taught sessions. You are also strongly encouraged to explore the key journals in this field - three of these are listed below but there are others 

You can also 'look' in the library in the various sections where these books are shelved to see a much wider list of related texts
