This book has disciplinary value while also opening up and informing debate on some of the most pressing cultural and policy issues of our day... if you have only got one book on in your Kindle focussing on the creative industries, this is the one to choose.
A comprehensive text on the state of the art of the creative industries. The book effectively populates the emergent field of the creative industries, dealing with both definitions and reach, as well as interactions and implications.
Nothing grows quite so fast in the creative industries as the debates about them. Yet these have been accented differently in different countries and across the different policy domains - cultural, economic, educational, and technological. Offering a lucid and comprehensive review of these debates, Terry Flew casts a well-informed eye on the place the creative industries occupy in today's increasingly globalised cultural economy.
Moving from age-old warnings about the influence of the cultural industry to a tentative embrace of a global creative society, Terry Flew provides an excellent overview of this exciting field
of research and practice. He effortlessly connects the dots in studies on management, production, law, policy, and labor that collectively shape our understanding of the creative industries. Warmly recommended for students and policymakers alike.
The book has a particular interest in creative industries and it's relationship with policy making. The course has a different focus thus I could not adapt it in the lectures.
A good read to familiarise oneself with current Creative Industries issues.
This is an essential introduction to current debates surrounding the creative industries. An invaluable resource.
This is an immensely accessible and readable text on the Creative Industries. Terry Flew has written a text that is engaging and informative and useful for students and lecturers alike. This is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the development and growth of the Creative Industries.
A very useful text.
It's not that it's a bad book. It's a good one. Very comprehensive in it's overview of the topic of the creative industries as they have been studied in the UK in particular. It just isn't appropriate for the class where I had intended to use it. I am currently using another Sage publication, Media/Society, which is pretty much ideal for the intro to media that I am teaching. This book would be good for upper undergrad or graduate-level surveys.
This book proves to be very useful and was effectively used at the outset of the study unit. It places the policy discourse very well and helps the students to get a better understanding of policies used today.
"The Creative Industries: Culture and Policy" is an excellent textbook about this topic that is obtaining more and more attention in the frontiers of culture, economy and territory. Flew has managed to make a great contribution that summarizes the origins, models, products and policies that characterize creative industries but also discusses more complex issues of creative work and globalisation impacts. It is a must-have for all those initiating and deepening studies in this area but also an obligatory purchase for the practitioners working in the field.
This is a good, comprehensive look at the area. He has a good style of writing
Good overview and critical analysis of creative industries.
Will recommend to Yr 3 Dissertation Students exploring the industry and dynamics of the sector
This book is ideal for the CI's but is not specific enough for this course
Excellent resource on the policy aspects of the creative industries, and an authoritative guide to debates in the field. Strongly recommended to students in the course, and for postgraduates.
This is a timely discussion of the creative industries and the convergence of issues from creative practice, cultural theory and innovation studies.
Culture and economy are uneasy bedfellows and Flew's book gets to the heart of an extremely complicated, ongoing debate. Therefore, this text, along with books by McGuigan and Throsby, makes invaluable reading for students coming to terms with life in the creative industries.
