'At last the comprehensive story of the creative city and the many streams of thought it inspires - by the most significant author and thinker in this space. As Charles argues, thinking with imagination and creativity is no longer a choice for cities, it's essential for them to thrive.' -- Margie Caust, Urban Strategist
'Now that the "shock and awe" of claim and counterclaim has blown over; an inspiring reflective synthesis of both the practices and the potentials for the Creative City.' -- Andy C. Pratt, City University of London, UK
'"Creative City" remains one of the most globally influential policy ideas. Landry's Advanced Introduction presents an intellectual landscape of the most compelling policy ideas, creative proposals, models of practice, and frameworks of reflection, that the creative city imaginary facilitates around the world. This is an essential companion to cultural policy in relation to cities and creative economy, place-making and any form of sustainable community worth living in.' -- Jonathan Vickery, University of Warwick, UK
'It is always impressive and inspiring how Charles Landry manages to tap into the big questions for our common future. His innovative approach to culture and creative industries as a mind and game changer developed a movement that is constantly growing. This book is again an eye opener on how to work on central issues - multi-layered, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral - bringing life and perspectives into the cities of tomorrow - where people have the power. -- Claudia Jericho, Creative Human Relations/ CREATIVE.NRW, Nord Rhein Westfalen Government, Germany
'Yes I love this book and find it very helpful as it describes for the first time the history of creative cities in a comprehensive way.' -- Emeritus Professor, Masayuki Sasaki, Osaka City University, Japan
