From the Publisher"It is unusual for a modern scholar to truly capture a field; there are so many running in the same direction. But Keane is the man who noticed, shaped and now writes with huge authority on the creative industries in China. This is an important and scholarly addition to the project."
Stephanie Donald, University of New South Wales
"In this pioneering book, Michael Keane provides a broad introduction to the Chinese discourse of media, arts and design industries. Using substantial fieldwork observation, Keane offers unique insights into the development of concepts of innovation and their relationship with intellectual property, culture, commerce and politics in China."
Anthony Fung, Chinese University of Hong Kong
"Michael Keane pioneered the study of creative industries in China. This book opens up access to fundamental but hitherto unexplored areas of a young industry whose rise was closely entwined with international lobbying, a burgeoning design culture, and fluctuating policy directives. Nobody can unravel those multi-faceted debates and discourses more deftly than Keane. This is a must read for anybody interested in the future of innovation in China."
