This Reader brings together the exciting and innovative work that has appeared in the last 10 years in the growing field of cultural economy. It contains a substantial introduction by the editors on the main strands and history of the cultural economy approach. It shows how the pursuit of prosperity always involves multiple and hybrid orderings that cannot be reduced to either the terms culture or economy. It shows that thinking about cultural economy is both a substantive task and a valuable contribution to knowledge. Material is organised around different links in the value chain.
