"...provides a good introduction to this specialist aspect of tourism and will no doubt be a key reference text for courses that include reference to the arts and tourism." - Tourism Management "The author provides some useful and comprehensive definitions ... suitable for a range of both generalist and specialist undergraduate courses relating to tourism, arts or cultural tourism management." M. Smith - International Journal of Tourism Research, March-April 2002 The book works because the author addresses the challenges facing the cultural industries, including their meaning, as well as their wider economic and social effects.......... This book gets the balance between the message (which is acceptable) and the content (which is relevant) absolutely 'spot on'. Students at most levels will find this book useful, as will managers who are willing to look beyond the balance sheet. Professor Peter Burns, Tourism, Summer 2001
