From the reviews:
"Creative Economies, Creative Cities, an edited collection of articles by academics from Europe, the Far East and Australia, puts Florida's thesis in global and historical context. The book mines a rich vein of debate that began long before 2002 about the effectiveness of the Creative Economy idea. ... The book is a kind of echo chamber for academics and policy-makers ... ." (Matthew J. Kiefer, ArchitectureBoston, September, 2009)
"One of the most valuable aspects of Creative Economies, Creative Cities is that it identifies questions from recent years about the cultural and creative industries, a sophisticated set of policy agendas regarding the development of creative economics and creative cities. ... This collection should be read by policymakers interested in design and implementation of culture-led regeneration projects." (Chang Bin Lee, International Journal of Cultural Policy, Vol. 17 (3), June, 2011)
"The book has a strong interdisciplinary approach-effectively reflecting the variety of topics and methods that characterise research in this area. ... the book proves a solid contribution and some of the chapters included will become highly cited within the field. ... it is the first attempt to adopt an inclusive view on the creative economy and give us a better understating of the creative economies discourses and creative city policies taking place in Asia. For this ground-breaking reason the book has to be praised." (Roberta Comunian, Journal of Cultural Economics, Vol. 34, February, 2010)
