M. Smith - International Journal of Tourism Research, March-April 2002
The book works because the author addresses the challenges facing the cultural industries, including their meaning, as well as their wider economic and social effects..........
This book gets the balance between the message (which is acceptable) and the content (which is relevant) absolutely 'spot on'. Students at most levels will find this book useful, as will managers who are willing to look beyond the balance sheet.
