"This is a valuable and timely book that addresses a clear gap in an expanding scholarly field. It makes a strong contribution to the growing literature, exploring what is at stake in the relationship between higher education and the cultural industries, interrogating some of the current challenges and problematic aspects of creative work." - Paul Long, Reader in Media and Cultural History, Birmingham City University, UK

"Ashton and Noonan have assembled an impressive array of perspectives that deftly explore the relationships between higher education and the cultural industries workplace. As universities further adapt to market pressures, this book reiterates what remains a fundamentally important question - what is an education in arts and culture really for?" - Mark Banks, Reader in Sociology, The Open University, UK

"Universities are increasingly pushed by governments to produce compliant working subjects, and this is increasingly true in the arts and creative industries. This excellent book provides hugely valuable critical perspectives on the implications for cultural workers, for universities, and for us all." - David Hesmondhalgh, Head of the Institute of Communications Studies and Professor of Media and Music Industries, University of Leeds, UK
