Abstract

The Cultural Economy analyses the dynamic relationship in which culture is part of the process of economic change that in turn changes the conditions of culture. It brings together perspectives from different disciplines to examine such critical issues as: - the production of cultural goods and services and the patterns of economic globalization; - the relationship between the commodification of the cultural economy and the aesthetic realm; - current and emerging organizational forms for the investment, production, distribution and consumption of cultural goods and services; - the complex relations between creators, producers, distributors and consumers of culture; - the policy implications of a globalizing cultural economy. By demonstrating empirically how the cultural industries interact with globalization, this volume will provide students of contemporary culture with a unique, indispensable reference tool.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
