This book challenges the new urban growth concepts of the creative class and creative industries from a critical urban theory perspective.

  • Critiques Richard Florida's popular books about cities and the creative class

  • Underscores that the culture industry takes a leading role in conforming with neoliberal conceptions of labor markets
