Overview

Creative Industries is a daring collection of essays that charts the noisy revolution that is transforming the production, consumption, and understanding of culture in the all-wired era. It brings together seminal essays written across traditional and new media, industry sectors, and national contexts to demonstrate that content still drives a value-neutral, knowledge economy.

  • Chronicles the way mass culture is produced, packaged and circulated in a technology-enabled and globalized world
  • Draws together, in one accessible volume, seminal essays written across traditional and new media, industry sectors, and national contexts
  • Explores the subjects that have come to define the creative industries – including learning services, knowledge clusters, dot.coms, creative cities, networked incubators, the new media, and the shift from the "culture industries" to the "industries of culture"
  • Features 31 essays by leading international scholars – covering the creative industries of several fields, including book publishing, TV production, urban development, and games
  • Includes substantial editorial introductions by the editor, making this a useful, engaging, and thought-provoking collection of the very best scholarship on modern creative culture.
