This book catalogues the 215 most-cited empirical, theoretical and practical articles on family business published in 33 journals since 1996. Researchers, students and practicing managers will find it indispensable as a quick reference and guide to what we have learned about family firms. Annotations for the articles consist of: summary of key findings, research questions, contributions, and research implications. They also include a detailed description of the methodologies, empirical data, definitions, and conceptual models used. In addition, the book features chapters that review the literature, discuss how family businesses have been defined, present recent trends in family business empirical research, and provide an agenda for future research. Scholars, researchers and PhD students in the fields of family business, entrepreneurship, organization theory, management, economics, finance, anthropology, sociology and business history will find this compendium insightful.The topics covered in the book will also prove to be essential to practitioners - both advisors and operators of family enterprises - as it will provide evidence-based knowledge on the issues and dilemmas faced by them in everyday life.
