Textbook Information

Don Taylor and Jeanne Smalling Archer, Up Against the Wal-Marts, 1995 or 2005 ed., American Management Association (AMACOM), ISBN 0814473008(Recommended)The book is recommended and referenced extensively in the course, but it is officially out of print and getting harder to find. Either edition of the book is fine ('95 or '05). Used and new copies can be ordered from Amazon or other online book suppliers. The UHV bookstore may also have copies. If you can find the book, you won't be disappointed in the book.

Walzer, Norman, Entrepreneurship and Local Economic Development, 1st ed., Lexington Books, ISBN 100739117122(Required)There is a new paperback edition published in 2009 which is just like the hardback edition and will be fine to use in the course.

Byrd/Megginson, Small Business Management an Entrepreneurial Guidebook, 7th ed., McGraw-Hill Irwin, ISBN 0078029090 (Required)

Information on Buying Textbooks

The Victoria College Bookstore carries textbooks for all UHV SBA courses.

Students may use the publishing information posted above to order their textbooks from their favorite book vendor. However, before doing so you should find out what your vendor's anticipated shipping time is, and what their return policy is. Also, you should not write in or remove shrinkwrap from any textbook or materials you purchase from any vendor until the first class day in the event that

  • the vendor supplies you with the wrong edition of your text,
  • the course instructor is forced to make a late change to the required textbooks,
  • you are forced to make a last-minute change to your schedule due to missing prerequisites, or
  • your course is canceled due to low enrollment.

In addition, be aware that, on occasion, certain outside vendors may substitute an international version of a textbook for the version you have requested without notice. International versions of textbooks may be quite different from the editions we require.
