Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a book whose time has come. My two favorite writers on cultural policy in a combo! At once adroit, skeptical, smart, original, and generous, David Bell and Kate Oakley have produced the best imaginable introduction to the field."

Toby Miller, Sir Walter Murdoch Professor of Cultural Policy Studies at Murdoch University, Australia and Professor of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University, UK

"Bell and Oakley capture the shape-shifting and trickster narratives at the heart of multiscalar cultural policy research today - its decentering, deconstruction, and politicization are impressively reviewed against the backdrop of the creative economy hucksterism.

The authors document an impressive synthesis of recent thinking in cultural geography, policy, and cultural studies, zooming from micro to macro, production and consumption, form and function, instrumental to intrinsic value, useful for unsettling the mental maps or ritual logic of student and policy expert alike, in a seductively easy read."

Catherine Murray, Professor in the School of Communication, Co- Director of the Centre for Policy Studies on Culture and Communities, Simon Fraser University, Canada
