Editorial Reviews


In focusing on the cultural-historical connection, an array of contentious social and economic arguments are highlighted as the different perspectives of contributors are presented.
Leisure, Recreation & Tourism Abstracts
Paul Knox
Places have been repackaged, redeveloped and 'sold' in new ways, not just in order to attract inward investment but also as part of a new dynamic in urban cultural politics. This volume is a response to these phenomena. It is a recognition of their complexity and an attempt to examine the discourses involved in manipulating culture and selling places...this book gets us off to a good start.
Progress in Human Geography
H. Lim
...brings together a number of interesting perspectives on the debate over the phenomenon of selling places...will provide a useful reference for researchers in the area.
