Handbook of Cultural Economics, Third Edition

3rd edition

Edited by Ruth Towse, Professor of Economics of Creative Industries, CIPPM, Bournemouth University and CREATe Fellow in Cultural Economics, University of Glasgow, UK and Trilce Navarrete Hernández, Lecturer in Cultural Economics, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands

Cultural economics has become well established as a subject of interest for students and teachers of courses ranging from economics to arts administration as well as for policy-makers and practitioners in the creative industries. Digitisation has had a tremendous impact on many areas of the creative economy and the third edition of this popular book fully reflects it.

‘Ruth Towse and Trilce Navarrete Hernández are leading lights in cultural economics, and the third edition of the Handbook of Cultural Economics once again is the go-to source for research and wisdom in this area of research, impressive for both its depth and breadth.’
– Tyler Cowen, George Mason University, US
