A new book on Cultural Policy: Management, Value and Modernity in the Creative Industries, by Dave O’Brien, has just been published by Routledge. It looks like a really detailed engagement with cultural policy in a range if settings. And there has already been some discussion of the Stone Roses style cover on Twitter. Here is the overview from the publishers site:

Contemporary society is complex; governed and administered by a range of contradictory policies, practices and techniques. Nowhere are these contradictions more keenly felt than in cultural policy. This book uses insights from a range of disciplines to aid the reader in understanding contemporary cultural policy.

Drawing on a range of case studies, including analysis of the reality of work in the creative industries, urban regeneration and current government cultural policy in the UK, the book discusses the idea of value in the cultural sector, showing how value plays out in cultural organizations.
