Reihe: Regionen in Europa / European Regions

In this edited volume scholars coming from all over Europe discuss the extent to which high- and low-culture can contribute to the economic development of Europe's old industrial regions. Including case studies from areas in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Poland and Russia, the book demonstrates that culture can play a role in regenerating old industrial regions, but rather as an image booster than as a job machine.

Paul Benneworth is senior research fellow at Newcastle University.

Gert-Jan Hospers teaches economic geography at the University of Twente and the Radboud University Nijmegen.
