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.
